All OK2BME Youth Groups (ages 12-18): Swimming

September 24, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

OK2BME is excited to announce our annual swimming youth group event.  The event is FREE but we would like your parents or guardians consent in order for you to participate in the outing.

Where to meet?  Please meet us at Forest Heights Pool Tuesday September 24th 6-7:30pm.

OK2BME aims to make this event as barrier free as possible so bus fair can be provided at prior OK2BME groups or picked up through the week at KW counselling Services. Just let our receptionists know that you are picking up bus fare to attend the OK2BME swimming event. On September 24th please meet at the pool. DO NOT come to OK2BME first.

What to bring? The facility has a large family change room space that accommodates all genders identities with a male, female and family change room. The city requires that you wear clean swim wear so, for example, clean swim/gym shorts and a t-shirt are acceptable, as is more traditional swim suit gear. You should also bring a towel!

OK2BME will have the entire pool to ourselves with the intention of creating a fun, safe place for LGBTQ2+ youth to be active and create community. There will be a lifeguard on duty at all times.


All participants MUST have this parent/guardian consent form signed in order to participate.


This group is for ages 12-18. It is FREE to attend. If you have any questions can e-mail us at OK2BME@kwcounselling.com or call Madison Fitzgerald at 519.884.0000 x205.
