Drop Off/Pick Up Procedures
Children are able to travel to and from programs without a Parent/Guardian with parent permission/approval. If you permit your child to travel to and from the program alone, you must complete the Independent Arrival and Departure Waiver during the registration process.
Children that are picked up by a parent/guardian will only be released at the end of the session to those listed on the registration forms as Authorized Persons to Pick Up
Please arrive 15 minutes early to complete the mandatory health screening and to be signed into the program.
Please note that there is no access to washrooms at the park, so please encourage your child(ren) to use the washroom prior to coming to the program. In the event that your child requires washroom use during program time, they will be sent back home to use the washroom.
Your child will be required to be screened for COVID symptoms each day prior to admittance into the program. Parents can print the daily COVID screening questionnaire found on our website here and submit upon arrival, or can answer the questions in person before each registered session.
What should my child bring?
Children should come to each session wearing appropriate clothing for the weather. We ask that all children wear appropriate footwear (running shoes) as flip flops and sandals have a high tendency to break during physical activities.
Your child should also wear a hat to each session.
Your child should also bring a large pre-filled water bottle, as we will not have direct access to water filling stations.
We ask that parents also pre-apply sunscreen prior to arrival to park programs.
**Children are not permitted to bring personal items/toys or equipment with them to park. If items are brought, they will not be permitted for use during our programs. BGC is not responsible for any lost or stolen items**
Programs run in dry weather only (will not operate in the rain)
Programs will be automatically cancelled if there is a 70% or more risk of a thunderstorm, or if there is a Thunderstorm Warning.
A heat/humidity advisory of 36° or higher will also result in automatic cancellation of programs
Program cancellations due to inclement weather or predicted weather will be posted on our Facebook page, as well as on our website. Cancellations will be posted no later than 2 hours prior to the start of a session.
