Ideal for ages 8 to 18, youth programs provide a safe and structured environment to learn valuable skills, discover new interests, and connect with other youth from military families. Having people who express care, challenge growth, provide support, share power and expand possibilities are integral to the support we provide youth. 

The Henderson Sweetman Youth Centre, also known as the YC, is located at the Shearwater site MFRC. It is a supervised youth centre with a variety of drop-in times and scheduled programming. Monthly programs include cooking/baking, Girl gab, movies and munchies, science and astronomy, as well as field trips that appeal to a variety of youth.

The YC’s annual membership is $25 (military) / $30 (civilian). New or renewing membership forms can found on our Resources page link to below, or can be picked up at the Henderson Sweetman Youth Centre or the Shearwater site MFRC Main Office. Credit card and debit payments may be paid with your membership form at the Main Office, Monday to Friday 8am – 4pm.
