The Day Camp experience at the BGC is hard to beat!
The BGC Niagara offers fun and exciting day camps during the Winter Holiday, March Break week, Summer Holiday and PA Days. Activities include a variety of arts, crafts, indoor and outdoor recreational sports, cooperative games and guest speakers with a focus on developing confidence, resiliency, social skills, physical literacy, and friendship building (please note: some activities may not be available due to COVID-19/public health restrictions).
Our camp leaders are experienced and trained in Early Childhood Education, Concurrent Education, Child and Youth Care, and Recreation. All of our staff have Standard first aid and CPR level C training and have completed Vulnerable Sector Criminal Record Checks. Staff-to-child ratios are set to the Ministry’s recommendations to provide high-quality supervision and greater individual attention to each child.
