ACtive living grey-bruce schedule

Week of May 18th - May 24th

The following schedule is just a guideline. There's no right or wrong way to do this. If you don't like something - skip it! If you loved it, do it again.
Try adding in a social element - schedule a phone call with friends and do the same activity together or talk about it after you've done it.

Take a picture of your photo challenges, drawing ideas, or any of the other activities on this list! We want to see what you're up to! [email protected]
