City of Toronto Launches Summer In The 6IX Program For Youth

Summer in the 6IX is a new program for youth being launched by the City of Toronto on Monday, July 20, 2020. This free program is designed for Toronto teens and young adults, offering opportunities to drop in, meet up with friends and participate in fun, themed activities.

Summer in the 6IX will offer a range of programming including dance, fitness, ecology and sports as well as leadership, employment, arts and media. Summer in the 6IX will be available to all Toronto youth at a variety of Toronto parks.

All youth, ages 13 – 24, can join in the fun. There is no cost to participate, and no pre-registration is necessary – just show up in the outdoor space when the program is scheduled to happen. There will be three session times offered per day at multiple locations across the city, seven days a week.

This program was developed with Toronto Public Health with a strong focus on health and safety. Programming is designed for participants to maintain physical distance from other individuals and groups. Equipment will be sanitized between uses, or individual supplies will be provided. Staff will conduct a verbal health screening with each participant prior to the program start and collect caregiver or participant contact information. This information will be collected for Toronto Public Health, if COVID-19 contact tracing is required.

Good to know...

Programs run in dry weather only. Bring your own water and wear hats and sunscreen. Closed-toe, closed heel shoes are also recommended. Program locations do not always have washrooms, so participants are expected to use their home facilities. Program schedules will be posted two weeks at a time so check back for more dates. Locations will change over the summer.
