The Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island (BGCCVI) are adding two locations to their Out of School programs in the Comox Valley.

Following the success at Aspen Park Elementary, the clubs are  excited for the Sept, 5 start of an Out of School Care program at Brooklyn Elementary in Comox and at Courtenay Elementary in Courtenay.

In honour of our expansion, board and staff invite the public to stop by the Comox Valley clubhouse at 367 11th St. in Courtenay on Aug. 21 between 3 and 7 p.m. to enjoy some cake and celebrate.

Program staff will be on hand to answer any questions and accept early registrations to Out of School Programs as well as to provide information on all of the programs designed for children, youth and families that Boys and Girls offer in the community.

Registration packages are available at www.bgccvi.com or through the clubhouse. They will also be available at the open house. Call 250-338-7582 for further information.
