Meet BGC Foothills Clubs!
It’s official! Boys and Girls Clubs of the Foothills has become BGC Foothills Clubs! Not to be trendy. Not because it’s shorter or catchier. But because we open our doors to all kids and teens and we believe our name should reflect that.
Removing gender from our name modernizes the BGC brand and echoes the inclusive practices we’re known for without straying too far from our history and national brand awareness. It also embraces the fact that we serve young people of all ages, backgrounds, and identities.
New name, same legacy: 30 years of creating opportunities for hundreds of local kids and teens.
BGC Foothills Clubs is a charitable organization dedicated to the personal growth and development of children and youth. We are committed to providing the highest quality programs and services for parents and their children.
Dedicated, trained staff and volunteers offer programs in physical recreation, technology, the arts, personal growth and more. Clubs create a safe, supportive environment where children and youth experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life!
Since 1994, the BGC Foothills Clubs (BGCF) programs have expanded substantially. Growing from a single location in Black Diamond to multiple locations across southern Alberta, BGC Foothills Clubs continues to provide support to local children and youth living in Eden Valley Reserve, Longview, Diamond Valley (formerly the towns of Black Diamond and Turner Valley), High River, Cayley, Foothills County, Nanton, MD of Willow Creek, Vulcan, Vulcan County and the City of Calgary.
BGCF currently provides programs and services for hundreds of children and youth, 12 months - 18 years of age. Programs include but are not limited to licensed Early Learning & Child Care Centres (previously known as Daycare), KinderCare, licensed Out of School Programs (including both before and after school programming), School Professional Development (PD Days), Summer Day Camps, breakfast programs, Food Security Programs, Recreational and Social Development Programs for Youth, Family Outreach Services and Youth Resource Centres.
