After School Programs

BGC Okanagan After School Programs are the best place for children to be after the school bell. For 60 years we have been providing programs to children and we know what kids love to do! Children will be provided time to play outside, sports, games, creative arts, a daily nutritional snack, and fun leisure activities. Our staff develop a special, caring relationship with each child, encouraging them to explore areas of interest, create new friendships, and develop their personal growth.

After School Programs & Location Details

After School Programs

After school programs emphasize a sense of belonging, help make positive choices, learn healthy behaviours and build on a child’s strengths encouraging them to reach their potential. Parents often comment that they “trust our staff in caring for their children.” We understand the importance of physical health, social and emotional development, learning, and allowing kids to be themselves in a supportive, safe place where they are encouraged to explore, try new activities, and have a lot FUN!

Armstrong Food Bank

Every month food banks in BC help 94,000 individuals. Many people don’t realize that it could be their neighbour or co-worker who needs help from a food bank in BC. Why? Because there is no typical person that turns to a food bank for help.

It may be a family where both parents are working, but just don’t have enough left over from each paycheque to fully feed their family. It may be a senior whose fixed income just doesn’t stretch far enough. It may be someone who is disabled, has a terminal illness or someone that has lost their job and for the first time in their life, has to reach out for help. It may be a single mom who is struggling to feed her children because she just doesn’t have enough support. In fact children make up close to 30% of the people who need help from our community food banks.
