Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

Desired Outcomes

Remember when you were a kid and how it felt to spend days with friends and family at the park. The excitement you felt driving over the bumpy road, knowing the playground was just ahead............... Let's bring that joy to our children.

As a Recreation Committee and Town Council we are striving to meet the following goals:
- To create a social hub where all residents of Hare Bay can connect.
- To restore pride and ownership in our community by bringing everyone together to achieve a common goal thereby developing a more united community empowered to create positive change.
- To provide our youth with opportunities that will foster positive self-growth and leadership skills, encouraging them to take an active role in their community.
- To enhance the lives of our children by creating a safe and sustainable play area that will promote physical and social activity for the children and their families.
- Networking with local businesses and organizations to increase support and participation thus allowing us to develop future projects.

One Big Step Closer

The Town of Hare Bay has come through in a big way. They've committed $10,000.00 to the two new playgrounds. The donation is just one of several ways the town is helping. The second playground was a new building lot (valued at $6500.00) that the town, instead of selling has now set aside for the new playground. There are many other things behind the scenes that the town does but are never mentioned. Small things like helping with postage, paper copying, use of town equipment and labor and other things that almost go unnoticed. We would like to give another big thank you to our town manager George Collins for all his help, encouragement and involvement. This whole process is about more than just the Recreation Committees involvement, it takes the community as a whole to make this dream come true. So let's pull up our socks people and let's have fun making this happen.
