Recreational Swims are a great way for children to enjoy swimming in a fun environment while staying physically active. Recreational swims are held in our Wellness Pool which consists of a warm water shallow end (91°F/33°C) and a deep end.
Competent swimmers that can pass the swim test can enjoy 3 water slides in the deep end of the Wellness Pool.
Our Evening Adventure Program (after-school) allows children and youth in Grades 1 to 8 to choose swimming as an option throughout the week. Children are supervised by a BGCL staff member in the water as well as qualified Lifeguards on the pool deck. Parents/Guardians are not permitted during these times.
Included in Membership and visitor fees during the school year.
