Gift Cards

Redeemable for a selection of many activities annually.
Purchase a giftcard for someone online, by telephone or in person
at any of our four recreation centres


Where can you find a gift that always fits, never goes out of style and offers the chance to experience everything from piano to pottery, swimming to Spring Break camps?

The answer is as close as your local community recreation centre or the Saanich Recreation website!

With online registration now a regular part of recreation programming, the Saanich team is excited to also announce the launch of online sales of Saanich Recreation gift cards – redeemable for virtually any recreation program, including personal training, golf at Cedar Hill Golf Course, reserved family and leisure swims and so much more. If the kids have their eye on a spring break horseback riding camp or science camp, they can use their card for that, too!

"A gift card for Saanich Recreation isn't going to get stuck in the back of a closet or sit around getting dusty. People who receive them value them and use them," says Bree Dobler, Administrative Supervisor at Saanich Commonwealth Place. "We track our gift card redemption, and our statistics show that nearly 100 per cent of our gift cards are redeemed within a year."

While we might think of using a gift card for a drop-in activity, like swimming or the weight room, the cards can be used for so much more!

"This is a gift that people can use for their physical or mental well-being, and they’ll genuinely thank you for it," Bree says. "Saanich Recreation is not only about health and fitness for your body but also for your brain and heart – learn a new skill, indulge a favourite hobby, try our arts programs, socials, walk-and-talks, or check out the awesome selection of products in The Shop at Commonwealth Place. The possibilities are nearly endless!"

Here's how it works:

  • Purchase your gift card online, over the phone or in person at any of Saanich's four recreation centres.
  • You don't need to have a Saanich Recreation account to purchase a gift card.
  • Gift cards can be used for any age, from preschooler to older adult, and for programs through any Saanich recreation centre or the Cedar Hill Golf Course. 
  • Those who purchase online will receive a printable certificate.

Saanich Recreation's safe, gradual reopening of its facilities and programs has allowed the team to monitor and adjust according to staff and public needs, and accommodate evolving public health guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and well-being of staff and guests.
