BGC Major Ballachey School-Age After School Program (MHSTC)

In 2008, to address government commitments to improve child and youth health issues, the Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Cultural Industries (formerly MHP), developed a “Child and Youth Health and Wellness After-School Strategy.” This strategy is focused on supporting comprehensive after-school programming in specific priority neighbourhoods where school-age residents can benefit from new or enhanced program focused on physical activity, healthy eating and nutrition, wellness and personal health education.

Program Content

  • 30% physical activity
  • 20% healthy eating and nutrition education

Please note that BGC Brantford does not accept cheques.

The Boys & Girls Club of Brantford’s after school program is wonderful. Our daughter loves the programming and activities and she often asks to stay late. We were pleasantly surprised as she has never asked this before! The staff are kind and professional and all the children seem to be genuinely having fun. There is a great ration of staff to children, and the Edge Street location has many activity options including outdoor play areas, arts and crafts room, multimedia/computer area and a large gym.
