Supie, Rich in Traditions and History

The Supie program is celebrating 114 years in 2023. Though there are similar programs across Ontario and throughout Canada, Hamilton is believed to have the longest continually running program in the country.

The Supie program offers free drop-in programs during the summer for children at neighbourhood park locations across the city. Programming varies based on participants in attendance and weather, and may include active games, crafts, circle games, or use of equipment/supplies.

Important Supie reminders:

  • Staff do not replace parent/guardian supervision. Children are allowed to join or leave activities or the park when they want.
  • All programs are free of charge.
  • All programs require check in with staff and collection of basic information (name, age, phone number).
  • Programming is weather dependent, and all efforts will be made to adjust activities before cancelling. Locations are subject to change without notice.
