Seniors Programs

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
The HSSC will be closed until further notice. Follow us on Facebook as some of our programs will be offered via videos!

The safety of our members at the HSSC has always been our top priority. We would like to reopen our pools and return to “normal” but after lengthy discussions and consultations we have made the difficult decision to keep our pools closed at this time. We are running summer camps on a small scale and have to limit the number of people in the building.

We are constantly assessing the current COVID-19 situation and the impact it has on our community and hopefully we have better news soon. We face many challenges re-opening the pools in terms of the health and safety of our members and visitors. Unfortunately, it is often the most difficult decisions that are best for everyone’s well being.

We would like to thank you for your support and understanding during this challenging and ever-changing times.

If you don't have a Facebook account, you can find the most recent Get Fit videos here, and you can find the Meditation, Yoga & Facebook Live chat videos here.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us by e-mail - info@bgclondon.ca. Or use the staff directory to connect with the HSSC staff directly.

We hope to see you soon!
