Virtual Summer Camp
About this program
While we are sad that our summer day camp has been impacted by COVID-19, we are very happy to announce that the Boys and Girls Club of Sarnia-Lambton has partnered with the Jays Care Foundation to provide a new kind of camp experience and are excited to bring BGC Virtual Summer Camp into your family’s home this summer!
We have been working hard to develop an interactive and fun virtual camp experience that mimics the best parts of our Summer Day Camp. Our staff have designed highly interactive and fun sessions tailored to your child’s age, ending each week with a fun theme-based team challenge. BGC Virtual Summer Camp has been designed to keep your child engaged by providing them with fun activities and an opportunity to interact with friends their age while being creative and learning new skills.
There is no charge to participate in these programs. BGC Virtual Summer Camp will run July 6-August 28 and you may choose as many weeks as you would like. We do ask that you attend each session during that week.
Our BGC Virtual Summer Day Camp Theme Weeks are as follows:
- Week 1: July 6 – July 10
- Week 2: July 13-July 17
- Week 3: July 20-July 24
