We are very happy to bring virtual programming into your family's home! The BGCL staff team has been working hard to develop interactive and fun virtual program experiences.
Virtual Evening Adventure operates from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and offers fun activities in an interactive way. This is important as we want to offer valuable social interactions to your kids where they get to spend time with two of our trained staff and other kids.
Our virtual programs are designed to keep your child engaged for up to 90 minutes and introduce them to fun activities and friends their age.
Your child will join a virtual group through Zoom with two live BGCL staff and other children their age in a cohort of no more than 8 kids. Each day, your child will laugh, play, connect and learn with their cohort. BGCL staff have designed highly interactive and fun sessions tailored to your child’s age.
Virtual programs are a great way for your child to connect with their friends, make new friends, while being creative and learning new skills.
Ages: For children in Grades 1 to 8 only
All genders are encouraged to participate!
Cost: Free for BGC members and non-members!
Hours: Spaces are available from Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
**Please note** Access to a computer (or a device that has a webcam and microphone) and internet connection is required. If assistance is needed with access to devices or the internet, please make sure to indicate this on the registration form.
Your child(ren) will need access to a computer or tablet during the session. We will be using the platform Zoom. You will receive a link prior to the session, along with a password, through which you can join the meeting - you won't need to register for a Zoom account to participate.
For some activities, materials may be things you have at home. Generally plastic bags, towels, rolled up socks, paper, crayons and color pencils. Also recycled material like egg cartons, glass containers, etc. Prior to each day of program, a list will be sent out (if supplies are needed).
YES! As long as your child is in a grade between 1 to 8, they can register to attend. A BGC membership is no longer required to participate in Virtual Evening Adventure.
Yes, you can register for as many nights as long spaces are available.
Siblings that don't yet meet the age limit can certainly be present and watch the session too. However, only the child registered will be able to actively take part in the session.
Each night of program is unique with a different fun theme. Staff create a specific program for the group of kids they are working with that meets their developmental needs and their unique interests.
