June is Recreation and Park Month (JRPM) is a movement that promotes the benefits of recreation and parks for physical, social, and environmental health. Communities across Ontario have embraced JRPM as a way to promote local programs and events, parks and facilities that are available for all citizens to enjoy.
Access to park and recreation is a fundamental human need that helps foster personal health, strong communities, and social inclusion. JRPM celebrates Ontario’s spectacular parks and recreation services and raises awareness for the role they play as a pathway to individual, community, and environmental well-being.
PRO has come up with activity ideas to celebrate the month! See below for ways you can take part in this initiative.
This month, we challenge you to see how many JRPM activities you can accomplish on the JRPM BINGO Board. We would love to see your progress on social media and pictures of the activities you are doing to participate. Download the Bingo board and the activity guide below and get started!
To help you out, we've created an activity guide with ideas on how to fulfill each category for different age groups.
