shapedown bc

The Shapedown BC program builds on the strength of the family.  We support families in making healthy lifestyle changes. Families will explore topics such as family meals, sleep habits, self-esteem, screen time, and mindfulness. Families learn together and support each other. 

About the program

This is a free 10-week program with two group sessions per week.  Groups are organized according to children/teens' age and involve education and fun activity components. Families participate in a 2-hour evening session and a 1-hour active weekend session.  We provide funding upon completion of the program to help your child maintain an active lifestyle.  This may include registration fees for classes, lessons or recreational passes.  

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Healthy Lifestyles program is still accepting referrals, offering education virtually and conducting individual appointments by telephone.
