 Happy Fall!!

Here are some things to keep you up to date on the Club:

Drum Fit

 We are excited to announce that we will be offering Drum Fit Classes on Saturdays!! Drum Fit is a non-competitive fitness program that combines music, movement and drumming all in one! Classes will be held from 11:00am-11:45am for children ages 6-13. Classes are $5 per class and pre-registration is required. The next session will begin Saturday, December 2nd.

Cookin' in the Kitchen

 With our partnership with Chigamik and the Healthy Kids Community Challenge we are offering a 6-week cooking program called Cookin’ in the Kitchen. Cookin’ in the Kitchen is about providing boys and girls with opportunity to consume more fruits and vegetables and the importance of fruits and vegetables in one’s diet. Cookin’ in the Kitchen will help participants gain knowledge on how many servings they should have each day and give them the tools needed so they are able to properly and safely prepare and consume fruits and vegetables in a variety of forms.

Giant Tiger Giant Steps

 This year we are running a new program called “Giant Tiger, Giant Steps”. This will be a Homework Help program where ages 12-14 can come and get support with their homework. They will have access to computers, as well as internet that they can use to get their homework done. We will also have knowledgeable staff/volunteers on hand to assist with any questions they may have about different homework subjects! There is a one-time $10.00 fee for non-after school members. If you would like more information, please call 705-526-6159 or email kelsi@bgcnorthsimcoe.com.

Labelling Personal Items

 We ask that all personal belongings (jackets, backpacks etc.) are labelled. We have many of the same items and want to ensure things go home with the proper owners (please remember we are not responsible for lost or stolen items). We also ask that indoor shoes are brought to the program. We ask that shoes be worn always and with the changing weather indoor shoes are ideal. We have a shelf that indoor shoes can be stored on throughout the week.
