Uncover PEI - Calendar

Download our challenge calendar for a fun way to add more time outdoors this June.  If you are able to complete at least 15 of the 30 activities during the month of June, you can submit your name for a chance to win 1 of 10 great prizes such as two nights camping at any PEI Provincial Park or a PEI National Park pass from Parks Canada.

 


Uncover PEI - Favorites

Islanders from all walks of life and from different geographic regions across PEI have been asked to provide their favorite outdoor location, their favorite outdoor activity and a tip to get other Islanders to go!Outdoors this June.  go!PEI will be posting various responses throughout the month of June.  Make sure you are following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see what Islanders have to say about how and where they like to enjoy nature.

 

 


Longest Day of Play - June 21

June 21 has the most sunlight hours in a day and go!PEI along with ParticipACTION are encouraging all Islanders to make room for play.  We're encouraging every individual,  family, workplace and/or community to organize an activity of some sort.  It could be an old favorite like croquet or lawn darts, it can be a chase game like tag or capture the flag, or it can be a search game like hide-n-seek or a scavenger hunt.  It doesn't matter what it is, just play and when you're done think of how much fun it was and perhaps you try and work a little more "play" into your schedule this month.

About go!PEI

go!PEI is a community-based healthy living program that offers free physical activity and healthy eating programs for Islanders across PEI. go!PEI is designed around providing information and supports to assist all Islanders to make simple changes to their lifestyle to improve their overall health and quality of life.

The go!PEI team is made up of provincial partners (Island Trails and PEI Healthy Eating Alliance), Regional Sport & Recreation Councils and four major municipalities (City of Charlottetown, City of Summerside, Town of Cornwall, and Town of Stratford).   This group works together to provide opportunities for Islanders wishing to make a change to their personal health.   Through these partners, go!PEI delivers free programs all across the province focusing on walking, running, biking, hiking and healthy eating activities.

go!PEI's seven core principles are to deliver:

1. Activities that are low cost or no cost
2. Activities that have readily available infrastructure across the Province
3. Activities that require limited equipment
4. Activities that do not have time constraints
5. Activities that can be done as an individual or as part of a group
6. Activities that can be done by any age group
7. Activities that can be done year round (maybe not cycling)

 

 

How to get Involved

Become a leader: It is our hope to have as many Islanders as possible organize and deliver a program to their community, group or organization. If you have an interest in getting something started for your group, send our coordinator an email.

Sign up for our E-Newsletter: We send out an email newsletter throughout the year with healthy living tips, stories and upcoming events. You can sign up for our newsletter on our website or when you register for a go!PEI program. Or, you can email Laura at gopei@recreationpei.ca!

Participate in a Program/Event: The calendar of events is available on our website which identifies when free upcoming courses and programs are taking place. For programs specific to your community, please contact the community partner nearest you for information.

Request Information: If you want to mobilize your workplace, organization, family or neighbors we can help you do this by providing some information. A number of workplaces have organized go!PEI activities as part of their workplace wellness initiatives by receiving resources from our office.

Download Resources: Finally, if you want to make some personal healthy living changes you can collect tips and lessons on how to do so on our website. You can download program booklets (to follow at home on your own) and healthy living information on our resource page.
