Updated on June 2nd, 2020 - Summer Day Camps

For many years the Boys and Girls Club of London has offered a variety of camps for children in our community. This year, with the onset of COVID-19, camps at the Club will be significantly impacted.

With the uncertainty that surrounds camps this summer, we have made the decision to refund all camp fees and cancel current registrations. Refunds will be done automatically and may take a few weeks to process.

While we still hope to run some form of camp, any decision to move forward will be based on recommendations from health authorities. If we do have camps, we know that they will be much smaller and more limited in space. It will also have an impact on the theme or type of camp that is offered and even where it will be offered.

As we move forward, please continue to check the Club's website for more details. We will be updating the site as we learn more about what we can offer. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Club closure is in effect until further notice. We will be monitoring the situation closely.

This closure will affect all children and youth programs, seniors programs, rentals including birthday parties, swim lessons, special events and HSSC events, and day camps. We will continue to work on issuing refunds /credits for activities and programs that have been cancelled/postponed. We appreciate your patience with this process as it does take some time.

During this time...

Children, youth and families can check out our videos for activity ideas and instructions or refer to our resources page. You can also watch videos from the Digital Creative Arts Centre on YouTube (DCAC London)! DCAC TV - The Kids Zone airs on Fridays at 10:00 a.m. on Facebook on the DCAC Facebook page.

HSSC Members and Visitors can participate in some programs online via Facebook. Get Fit, Seated Exercises, and Meditation will be available live streaming on the HSSC Facebook page. Videos are automatically saved in the video archive so if you miss it live, you can always watch it later! For a full schedule of their new virtual programming, click here.

Our staff team is continuing to work from home to figure out creative ways to stay connected with families, children, youth, and seniors and provide support. You can always reach us by e-mail by using our staff directory or send it to our general info account and we’ll forward your message to the correct staff person to respond.

On-going Precautions

There are measures we can take now to prevent the spread of illness. Please take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:
  • Practice regular and thorough hand washing especially after coughing, sneezing, blowing your nose; after using the washroom or changing diapers; before preparing food or eating.
  • Practice good cough etiquette by coughing into your sleeve or into a tissue.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth as once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus and from there, the virus can enter your body and make you sick.
  • If you are sick, please stay home, including if you are taking medications to mask symptoms (such as fever, coughing or shortness of breath).
