WHAT IS SUMMER ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS?

Throughout the months of July and August (excluding Statutory holidays), BGCB operates Summer Adventure Day Camps, which is a registration-based fee-for-service program offered Monday to Friday at our Main Site. Summer Adventure Day Camps ensures families have access to affordable programming for their child(ren) during the summer months. The camps are highly active and feature weekly themes,  field trips, and plenty of outdoor fun.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN SUMMER ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS?

Summer Adventure Day Camps is designed for children & youth ages 5-14. Unfortunately due to COVID-19 precautions, limited space is available. (15 participants only)

HOW WILL YOU REGULATE 15 PARTICIPANTS ONLY?

Because limited space is available, the first 15 registrations, with completed forms and payment received, will have secured spots. As each week fills up, we will ensure a “wait list” is created for that particular week should a participants registration be cancelled.

WHERE IS SUMMER ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS HELD?

Summer Adventure Day Camps is held primarily at the Club located at 1301-104th Street North Battleford, SK S9A 1N9. Participants will spend most of the day outdoors if weather permits. In previous years, participants would enjoy one field trip every week to a location outside of the Club. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, field trips have been cancelled.

WHAT DOES SUMMER ADVENTURE DAY CAMPS COST?

Although we will see increased costs to operate, this year we are offering our Summer Adventure Day Camps at a slightly reduced weekly rate of $120.00. We made this decision knowing the financial impact COVID-19 has had on many, combined with the fact we have cancelled our weekly field trips.
