Before and After School Care
Before and After School Care.
Are you looking for a safe and fun place for before and/or after school for your child? We can help! The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs have Before and After School programs available at many of our clubs!
Before School Programs are for children who require a safe place to go before school. This program offers breakfast and safe transportation to school.
After School programs operate when school is not is session. Children have opportunities to develop new skills, make new friends and challenge themselves with new adventures. While in the After School Program children will participate in activities in the following program Streams: Sports, Leisure and Recreation, Creative Arts and Personal Growth and Life Skills. Caring, committed staff act as positive role models ensuring that the health and safety of each child is maintained. Children are transported from school to the Club by staff in Agency vehicles.

Capital One Race for Kids
Capital One Race for Kids 2014. Believe it or not we are in the planning stages of our 3rd Annual 2014 Capital One Race for Kids. We are excited to continue to build on this event and hope that you will consider joining us for the most fun-filled, urban adventure race of the year. Capital One Race for Kids is a combination of the Amazing Race meets Minute It to Win It. The event brings teams of 4 adults together to work through clues making their way around the city where they must complete 10 checkpoint challenges. The fun, the laughter, the excitement and the adventure all create a memorable day for everyone including the participants, volunteers and sponsors.
"My team had a blast and want to attend again next year. I think the Race is a great “team building” event for corporations. My group worked together to fundraiser prior to the event and then the Race itself was a great way for us to work together to solve problems, have fun and get to know each other better on a personal level. We regularly do team building exercises and I don’t think there has ever been one that is as much fun and also so effective in actually strengthening our team as the Race was/is. We will be promoting it more here at the Vernon Office next year and will try to get more teams involved. " Quote from Kevin McCarty, Corporate Social Responsibility Coordinator from Kal Tire.
You don't want to miss out. Contact Richelle at email@example.com if you are interested in being a participant, sponsor or volunteers. We look forward to you joining the Capital One Race for Kids 2014!
