Youth Centre

Youth Centre (NDYC)

The Nelson and District Youth Centre has been serving young people in this city with energy and pride for two decades. The Centre was thoughtfully envisioned by City council in 1997 to 'Create a safe, accepting and empowering community where all youth can interact and access a variety of activities they need and enjoy'.

Most people know the Youth Centre features a fabulous indoor skate park, but that is just a fraction of what we offer. There is a band room, art room, dance studio, indoor basketball court, pool table,plus foosball and ping pong tables. In short, we offer a whole host of healthy activities and special programming for youth to explore and learn. The Centre has grown into a place for young people and parents to gather, get exercise, learn new skills or hang out with friends.



We offer creative and fun programs, and are passionate about working with children and youth. NDYC Summer Camps promote fun and friendship through field trips, theme days, creative arts and crafts and lots of games!
