Welcome to SWARG!
The South West Area Recreation Guild was formed in 1975 to provide an organization through which individuals involved in recreation and leisure support services could meet.
Over the past 30 years, there have been many changes in recreation, in the services we offer, and in the facilities we work in. However, the focus of the Guild remains true to goal of the founding members, and we continue to provide opportunities for the professional and personal growth of recreation providers in South West Ontario.
Over the years, we’ve:
- Awarded over $10,000 in bursaries, providing financial assistance to students from South-western Ontario in their education in the recreation field;
- Provided professional development opportunities through workshops, including topics on Innovative Youth Programming, Volunteer Screening, and Risk Management; and
- Engaged in initiatives such as Rails to Trails and Active 2010.
