Recreational Swims are a great way for children to enjoy swimming in a fun environment while staying physically active. Recreational swims are held in our Wellness Pool which consists of a warm water shallow end (91°F/33°C) and a deep end. Competent swimmers that can pass the swim test can enjoy 3 water slides and a Tarzan rope in the deep end of the Wellness Pool.

Our Evening Adventure Program (after school) allows children and youth to choose swimming as an option throughout the week, Monday to Friday. Children are supervised by a BGCL staff member in the water as well as qualified Lifeguards. Parents/guardians are not permitted during these times.
