Rural Communities

On several occasions, AAFS staff were approached by parents and youth wondering if AAFS has any programs in communities outside of Calgary, and if we would consider expanding. With this feedback in mind, AAFS established Rural AAFS in the winter of 2017, to better service areas surrounding Calgary such as Airdrie, Cochrane and Okotoks.

We run our Rural AAFS activities in the same way as we do in Calgary. Rural programming is not limited to specified regions, any AAFS members, wherever they live, are welcome to register and attend these event.  


  • AAFS Airdrie has been running Clubhouse Night & Community Outing activities since January 2019. Our activities run one Wednesday a month ~6:30pm-8:30pm.


  • AAFS Okotoks has been running Clubhouse Night & Community Outing activities since January 2019 in various locations of the town. Our activities run on the second Monday of each month. These activities are now based out of The Point and run ~6:30pm-8:30pm.


  • AAFS Cochrane is our latest addition to the AAFS Rural Umbrella. Programming in this area started in May 2022. We are currently offering Tuesday Clubhouse Nights and Community Outings every other Wednesday ~6:30pm-8:30pm, and a variety of Specialized Programs.
