GMFRC youth programs offer something for everyone! Social, recreational and educational activities will provide opportunities to learn, grow and develop new friendships.
Our Youth Centre welcomes you to check us out before purchasing a yearly membership
– your first visit is always FREE! Your membership allows you to attend all of our drop in times and lots of programs at no extra cost although some special events and activities have an additional charge.
Please check out our monthly calendar to see details of current programs and special events and information on how to register.
We are always open to suggestions from community members about programs they would be interested in. Let us know what you might like to see and we’ll see if we can make it happen.
Come check us out! We offer tons of different programs for you to participate in or just come on in to hang out with friends, use the computers or have a snack from our canteen.

Program Registration and Cancellation
Pre-registration is required for most of our facilitated programs. Please refer to our monthly calendar for registration deadlines (generally 2 business days prior to the program date) and costs. You are not considered registered for a program until the registration fee is paid. To do so, you may drop in to the MFRC (and/or the Youth Centre for cash payments only for Youth Programs) during business hours to register and pay.
As a convenience option you may purchase a pre-paid punch card* that remains at the MFRC reception desk. When you wish to register for a program you may call the reception desk at 422-3352 and as long as your punch card balance covers the cost of the program(s) you wish to register for, registration can be completed over the phone and your punch card will be reduced accordingly. As an added bonus, if you purchase a $10 punch card you will receive $2 worth of bonus stamps to put towards program registrations.
The MFRC is happy to process credit card payments over the phone with a minimum of $10 purchase.
*There are some programs that cannot accept punch cards.
We require a minimum number of registrants for programs to run. Should minimum registration not be met (or a special circumstance arises in which the MFRC has to cancel a program) you can either immediately forward that registration fee to another program or you will be refunded for the cancelled program on a punch card that you can use for future program registrations.
Should you need to cancel your registration we require a 24 hours notice in order to refund you (on a punch card) the program registration fee.
Many of our special events and programs require a profile sheet to be filled in with contact and medical information in case of emergencies and a photo waiver can be signed which allows the MFRC permission to use photos in our many print and electronic publications and social media sites. For convenience, once these waivers are completed we will keep them on site and will have parents and/or guardians check for changes and add a new date upon new program registration.
