She also notes the return of popular programs such as Drums Alive and Zumba for Kids, aiming to enrich participants' fitness journeys.

Melissa Furlotte, head lifeguard, shares her excitement for the aquatic programs at the Powell River Recreation Complex pool.

“We're eager to kickoff tot, preschool and school-aged lessons in April, welcoming back familiar faces and meeting new ones,” says Furlotte. “Our new Teen Technique – swim builder class is particularly designed for 12- to 16-year-olds aiming to strengthen basic swimming skills.”
