Active Cambridge is a non profit organization dedicated to help raise the fitness levels of our Cambridge community. We accomplish this by connecting residents with many of the Sports and Fitness activities available in our great city. Currently we have over forty different groups working with us to carry the Keep Fit, Stay Healthy message. These groups are very diverse in type and intensity of activity so there is something for everybody. "Get Activated !!"
Get Started Here !!
To help focus in on what activity might be most appealing to an individual we recommend you spend a few moments completing your activitype profile. This fun activity will help identify if you enjoy team sports vs individual activities and are competitive by nature or more interested in self fulfillment ventures. Based on this information the ActiviTYPING App will recommend activities that fit the profile you have provided. Are you Fire, Water, Earth or Wind ?
The Active City is a weekly TV show on Rogers community television.

Highlights : Sports Day, September 2014 - Monsignor Doyle High School
Inspired by the CBC's and Participaction's challenge to get active through Sports, Active Cambridge members and the High School Staff has introduced a once a year Sports Day. This is the second year for the program and has been very well received by many hundreds of students each year. Students can choose two out of six activities offered that will allow them to try a sport or fitness activity that perhaps they have never tried before. Hopefully the experiences will help students find an activity that they really enjoy and will continue to pursue. This year they were offered Hip Hop, Self Defence, Rugby, Zumba, Cheer Leading and Orienteer running.
