Getting Involved in the Kingston Community

On the social scene, Kingston has something for everyone:

To join a club, special interest group, hobby or sports group check Volunteer & Information Kingston's data base. There are thousands of entries; each providing contact and registration information.

kingstonist has up-to-date information on sports and recreation in the city.

Just a few examples:

The Kingston Field Naturalists Club's goal is to stimulate an interest in nature and the preservation of wildlife through field trips and speakers. Meets on the Queen's campus.

The Rideau Trail Club sponsors day hikes and other outdoor activities. Hikes vary in length and degree of effort; many are on the Rideau Trail, a cross-country footpath between Kingston and Ottawa. In winter months, there are cross-country ski outings.

The Kingston Sport and Social club offers a mix of sports and social events. You can join on-line!

Kids Kingston is an online discussion site providing parents with social contacts and information about community events and activities.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved.

To find a volunteer position, check Kingston's Volunteer database.
