Activities

Our summer agenda is here!

Our charity organization, Flottafólk, is pleased to present its summer schedule for children and teenagers. We have a football course with Ukrainian coaches, a music course for the youngest children and a scouting course for children and teenagers coming up. We are interested in number of participants for each course. Please comment below “Football +1” / “Music +1” / “Scouts +1” (+1 = number of children attending)

We will be promoting each event separately this week. As always, our Children’s Center at Hátún 2 is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm where children can play and get breakfast, lunch and afternoon coffee.

Our facility in Neskirkja is also open as usual, where you can get clothes, access computers and meet Ukrainians or volunteers who are here to help.

Your community center, G8 at Aflagrandi 40, opens again after the summer with a wonderful agenda for everyone.

Pool trip

Hópferð í Árbæjarlaug. Sundlaugin er mjög fjölskylduvæn og með frábæru útsýni yfir Reykjavík. Krakkar eldri en 10 þurfa ekki umsjónarkennara fyrir fullorðna en sjálfboðaliðar munu koma með. Ef börnin eða foreldrarnir eiga ekki sundföt ennþá (við erum að vinna í að fá alla sundföt) mun sundlaugin lána sundföt og handklæði sér að kostnaðarlausu. Eftir að hafa skvett í sundlaugina mun ísbíllinn kíkja í heimsókn og gefa öllum börnunum ís.

Tími: Fimmtudagur 31. mars
Staður: Árbæjarlaug almenningslaug, Fylkisvegi 9, 110 Reykjavík

Rútur verða útvegaðar eftir áhuga svo vinsamlegast skráðu þig hér:
