Play Packs

Play Packs are created for movement! These unique physical literacy kits are filled with equipment, props, and books that encourage families to get up and move! Play Packs are great resources for parents, grandparents, teachers, early childhood educators, day care providers, homeschoolers, coaches--and even family reunions!

There are eight themed kits to choose from:

Active Start

Family Games

Family Snowshoe Fun

Jumpin' and Jammin'

Kick and Catch

Outdoor Sports

Ready, Set, Skip

Snow and Sand

Play Packs are offered in partnership with Super Kids CK (part of Healthy Kids Community Challenge), Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit, and YMCA Chatham-Kent.

CKPL also has a Pedometer Lending Program in partnership with CK Trails Connect! Check out an individual pedometer or a kit of 10! Each pedometer comes with a CK Trail Map to borrow to help you explore Chatham-Kent!
