Dadventures: A New Wellness Centre Initiative to Support Men Raising Children

The community Wellness Centre is about to launch Dadventures, a pilot project targeted specifically at men raising children in the greater Quebec City.  Dads, step-dads, grandpas, and uncles are invited to spend Saturday mornings (9:30 to 11 am) powering forward together with their kids in a variety of muscle growing, motor skill stretching, fun filled bonding activities. Jarryd Smith, Fitness coach and father is organizing these events. Daventures will start with a hike in the great outdoors on September 28, 2019 and culminate in an Amazing Race event in honor of Semaine Québecoise de la paternité on June 13, 2020. View the full schedule.

The first Dadventures outing is a fun hiking adventure  for new little hikers. Explore an energizing forest climb up Mt. Wright in beautiful Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury.   Share your love of nature with your kids. Enjoy the fall colors and let them experience the great outdoors.  Dads and kids will meet up at 18 Chemin de l’Escalade, Stoneham-et-Tewkesbury, QC G3C 0R2  at  9:30 AM. You might want to bring a change of clothes for your toddler who is bound to get wet and and don’t forget your baby carrier if you need one  and your water bottles! The Wellness Centre will provide snacks. This activity is offered free-of-charge.

Please register by the September 25th deadline by  contact Ellie Fleming, Program Support Agent at the Wellness Centre or 488 684-5333 Ext 1265.
