Play Days

Pin It


Play is…

  • Engagement in activity for enjoyment and recreation.
  • Freely chosen, personally directed, intrinsically motivated behaviour.

Play Days is a Recreation Newfoundland and Labrador province-wide special events initiative, designed to celebrate play.

Inspired by ParticipACTION’s 150 Play List, Play Days is designed to be a multi-community event (meaning, neighbouring communities work together to host an event) to celebrate play by encouraging people of all ages and abilities to get out and active. The focus of these events is to promote the benefits and value of recreation and play for all ages. With that in mind, this document is designed as a guide and each hosting community has the opportunity to make their Play Days event unique to their area.
