As Champlain Township’s Parks and Recreation Department moves forward into spring and summer, it wants to keep offering ways to stay active in Champlain. The township’s “Be More Active” fitness classes will resume in the fall, however the township is now at work to open the L’Orignal beach, its parks, the L’Orignal Campground, the L’Orignal Marina, tennis courts, the BMX Park and baseball facilities and is encouraging you to take advantage of all these great amenities.

Champlain Township says it will continue to support and promote health and fitness in the community by organizing and supporting events that can help entertain your friends and family and encourage them as well, to be more active this summer.

To do this, the township parks and recreation department has created a summer check list of activities to add to your calendar;
