St.Amant Spirit Cottage
The St.Amant Foundation welcomes you to the $1M St.Amant Spirit Cottage by Hans Kraus Family & Qualico. The Spirit Cottage is fully accessible and will allow children and adults supported by St.Amant to connect with nature, play in an inspiring and safe environment, enjoy spontaneous adventure and delight in recreation year-round!
The four-season cottage is equipped with lifts, a wheelchair ramp, three bedrooms and has all the amenities one needs for a memorable weekend getaway, including an in-ground pool, fire pit and generous decking. With the support of many generous donors, this project will help ensure the individuals and their families we support will have a warm and relaxing recreational option that is inclusive and accessible for all. Located on the riverbank behind St.Amant in St. Vital, visitors won’t have to travel far to relax.
St.Amant Spirit Cottage Pool
At designated times throughout summer 2019, the pool will be available regardless of whether you are booked to be at the Spirit Cottage or not. This includes people supported, their families, and any of our St.Amant staff. However, there are some exceptions to a few dates.
Some activities include a free swim, lap swimming, and games. No registration is required. Hours and activities will expand over the summer. A calendar of pool activities and events will be shared on a weekly basis.
Pool Activities Schedule
In the event that the pool and pool deck reach capacity, we will have to turn people away.
Through a grant with Canada Summer Jobs, we are employing three Recreation Facilitators for the summer. All three are lifeguard certified and will facilitate the scheduled activities. It is still necessary to provide the required support in the pool for each person who may need it as the Recreation Facilitators cannot provide direct care to anyone unless it is an emergency situation.
There’s a washroom, change room, and pool house at the pool. In addition, a barbecue and furniture have been purchased to make time at the pool a more enjoyable experience.
For any questions related to activities at the Spirit Cottage pool, please contact Samantha Chodirker at 204-256-4301 ext. 3348 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
