Recreation, Sports, & Events

The following is a sampling of the hundreds of recreation events, workshops, field trips, etc. that The Centre for Learning@HOME is offering around Alberta during each school year.  During the past two years, there has been a CFL@HOME-sponsored event happening somewhere in Alberta nearly every single day.  We believe in creating face-to-face opportunities for our students and families to gather and network.
