Rural Programs

We are excited to be working in partnership with the Municipality of Thames Centre and Middlesex Centre to bring programs and services to rural communities on the outskirts of London.

We offer programs out of the Youth Clubhouse and West Nissouri P.S. in Thorndale, and out of the Ilderton Arena, Ilderton Community Centre, and Oxbow P.S. in Ilderton.

We offer programs for Grades 4 to 12 that include:

  • Drop-In Hangout/Weekly Activities
  • Arts (Visual Art, Drama, Music, Dance)
  • Events
  • Sports & Games
  • Camps
  • Youth Leadership/Youth Council
  • Volunteer Opportunities

Program discounts and free drop-in programming for BGC Members.


Youth ages 9 to 18 who are interested in participating in any of the activities must either have a valid BGC Youth Membership or become a BGC Youth Visitor. Members get discounts on registered programs, and can attend the drop-in programming for Free.
