Summer Sanctuary in the Silver City

The pre-teen centre is free and open to all children ages 8-12

Leanne DeBiasio, coordinator at downtown Trail’s Sanctuary Pre-Teen Centre, was setting up a display in the window of Mills Office Productivity this week as one way to let the community know there is still room for children this summer and fall.

The drop-in centre – which is free – will re-open for summer hours on July 16 and run from 1 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. weekdays until August.

For more information call 250.368.6142 or email

About Sanctuary:

Sanctuary Pree-Teen Centre has been open since September 1998.

The facility has about 50 children, ages 8-12, visiting on an ongoing basis, with about 18-25 children coming each day and about 12-20 for supper each night.

The goal is to provide a safe and very different environment where children can learn a better way of interacting with each other, the volunteers, and their world.
