Free Youth Admission Pass & Baby Daze Programs Kick-off as part of Delta Families First Initiative

Jul 01, 2019

Starting July 1, Delta youth aged 10-18 or in grades 5-12 can obtain their Youth Admission Pass to get free access to all City of Delta recreation facilities and any drop-in programs.

Replacing the current Grade Five through Eight Pass Program, Delta’s new Youth Admission Pass is a significantly expanded program that offers free access to Delta’s recreation facilities to nearly 13,000 youth. This new program will encourage youth to stay active and healthy in a safe environment at Delta's recreation centres.

Delta youth can obtain the Youth Admission Pass from the customer service counter of any Delta recreation centre by presenting proof of birthdate and residency (e.g. BC Services Card). Click here for more information about the free Youth Admission Pass.

On July 3, Delta’s new Baby Daze program begins, offering new parents weekly 2-hour drop-in information sessions with a public health nurse. Baby Daze is aimed at providing new parents with an inclusive environment to socialize their babies and receive valuable support from a qualified nurse. Topics will change weekly with a new schedule of dates and topics available each 13-week cycle. New parents are welcome to attend sessions during the following days and times – there is no requirement to attend every session:

“Delta is the first City in Canada to offer such an extensive free youth pass program to help provide positive opportunities for children and youth. As your Council, we will continue to pursue more opportunities that support families in our community. I want to help make living in Delta easier for families. These Delta Families First programs will do just that.”
