BGC Battlefords was established in 1976 to provide for the recreational, cultural, educational and social needs of all children and youth, 5-14 years of age in our community. Our mission is to provide a safe place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships, and develop confidence and skills for life. Operating on Treaty 6 Territory, we welcome all children and youth between 5-14 years of age from the community and surrounding areas, including all financial circumstances, socio-ethnic backgrounds, and abilities. All of our programs include nutritious snacks and access to fun, enriching activities and caring adults who support them to become healthy, responsible, compassionate, and competent individuals.
Many children and youth do not have access to safe, constructive activities and positive guidance when they are outside of school. With a $5 annual Membership, we offer an unlimited Drop-In Program, Husky Energy Youth Program, Innovation Credit Union Saturday Program, Supper Program, Non-School Days Program, Early Dismissal accommodations and Special Programs.
In addition to our Membership programs, we also offer Fee-for-Service Before and After School Programs at three local elementary schools (referred to as our Satellite Sites). Members at our Satellite Sites have the convenience of participating in our programs without having to leave school.
Throughout the months of July & August (excluding Statutory holidays and weekends), we operate Summer Adventure Day Camps. Summer Adventure Day Camps ensures families have access to affordable, highly active, programming which feature weekly themes, out-trips and plenty of outdoor fun!
