community partners


While KIOS is a community initiative of The Salvation Army Owen Sound Community Church, it is really our community partners that make the program possible. We are grateful for the support that comes from local business, individual donors, and an amazing group of volunteers.



One of the goals that we are working toward is to provide transportation to and from KIOS for every child in Owen Sound who due to transportation issues would not otherwise be able to attend. Initially, transportation will be provided for children living on the west side and in the downtown core.

Program Dates for 2016-2017


The 2016-2017 KIOS season runs for 16 Saturdays beginning on Saturday October 1st, continuing through to Saturday December 10th, then restarting Saturday January 14th to Saturday May 20th. The program runs every second Saturday.
