THE STEPS TO BOOK A TIME SLOT ON BOOK KING  

    


13 July 2020

We know many of you are really looking forward to returning to our fitness centre and we are looking forward to seeing you.

As Base Gagetown slowly and safely resumes its operations according to the required health and safety requirements, we are working towards getting all the necessary measures in place to reopen as soon as possible. Our priority is to ensure the health and well-being of our Canadian Armed Forces members and their families, our patrons and staff and our surrounding community.

Our facility will be different when you return and will not have the same capacity or same level of available equipment as it did prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional safeguards will be in place and access to some equipment or areas may not be available right away.

Please continue to follow our PSP Gagetown Facebook page for updates. We will advise our users of any new updated information as soon as we receive it.
Thank you for your continued cooperation, patience and participation in our virtual programming.


21 May 2020

In anticipation of a potential announcement by the province tomorrow that would allow the re-opening of gymnasiums, we want to let you know that there are additional considerations that will apply to services provided at Base Gagetown. In this context of a gradual and safe return to normal operations in civilian establishments, Base Gagetown continues to operate essential services only and its fitness centre will NOT re-open at this time.

The priority for the Base Gagetown Fitness Center has been and remains support to military training. Prior to its closure, fitness activities associated with military training were always prioritized above recreational access and our resumption of fitness operations will first focus on support to students and staff once training resumes.

In the face of COVID-19, uunprecedented measures have been taken to protect the health and well-being of military members so they can remain ready to support current operations, local and international, as well as any future ones. Keeping our fitness center closed to the public at this time will help reduce potential exposure thereby protecting our forces so they can stay fit for duty.

The situation will be closely monitored with the health and well-being of our military members, public users and their families as our main concern and adjustments will be made when it is appropriate and safe to do so.


In the meantime, we encourage you to continue taking advantage of the online content provided by our PSP Gagetown staff from Recreation, Fitness and Sports, and Health Promotions:
