Frequently Asked Questions

You can click on the question to jump to the corresponding answer.

My child/children’s membership expired during the time the BGCL was closed. Can I still register them for program?

If your child was a regular participant in Evening Adventure during the last school year, 2019-2020, yes, you can register for program.

How is the BGCL handling memberships that expired during the closure (March 2020 to June 2020)?  Will there be a discount for a new membership or a refund for the lost time?

Many of you have inquired about your membership status. At this time, there is no need to concern yourself with renewals, card pick-ups, and/or any other membership related concern.

Once we return to normal, a process will be implemented to compensate all members for the time loss being able to access programs directly within the BGC London.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding.

My child has never been a member of the BGCL. Can I register them for a membership and then register them to attend program?

Yes. Our membership model is accessible so we encourage families to reach out if assistance is required. You can find information about our memberships here .

My child has special needs and requires support. Can they still attend?

Yes, they can attend if you are able to provide a support worker for them. We are unable to provide one-to-one support.

There is no cost for the support worker to attend however we will need to record some personal information for our COVID-19 contact tracing log. 

Children must be pre-registered, and they will be placed in a cohort and they will have to follow the schedule that is provided.

What activities will be available for children in the program?

We are planning to assign children to cohorts based on ages (siblings will be in the same cohort).

Each cohort will have approximately 30 minutes to play in each pre-assigned program areas.

They will be rotating through various program rooms available to participate in activities ranging from arts and crafts, games, sports, and more. The program areas and activities meet the age and needs of all of the participants.
