Parents and Tots

Our Parents & Tots program runs from Tuesdays to Saturdays with a variety of activities and programming for babies, toddlers, pre-school aged children and their families. Throughout the week we offer an opportunity for each child to learn through play and discovery.

Youth 4-12

Our programs and services are for children 4 to 12 years old, and their families. Our goal is to provide a safe, encouraging and empowering environment in which children can learn and grow. We offer specialized programs and activities that focus on team work, leadership, healthy lifestyles, fostering acceptance, inclusion, respect, cooperation and responsibility.

Teen and Young Adults

The Dawson Teen Program offers drop-in and structured activities for youth aged 13-17 years. In a safe, supportive and positive environment, teens are given the opportunity to increase their physical skills, gain a sense of identity and purpose. Teens are encouraged to be responsible participants, both within the program and the community.


The Seniors program is for adults aged 50 years and up, autonomous, retired or available during the program hours (9:00 am-2:30 pm). The majority of our 165 members are English speaking seniors from Verdun and the surrounding area. We are bilingual and open to all other languages and cultures.
