Together, we can create a brighter future.

BGC Ottawa helps kids and teens learn important skills to do well in life by offering special programs, local services, and friendships with other kids and adults who care about them.

Camp Smitty

Camp Smitty is often described by parents as genuine, responsible and trustworthy, while Campers say it’s fun, cool and awesome. Camp is such a special place in the hearts of so many people, and we hope to see your children and youth in our world of fun soon.

Help Build a Better Community

You can help thousands of children and youth in Ottawa’s most vulnerable communities reach their full potential by supporting the highest priority needs of the Club or you may choose to designate your funds to the programming pillar that has the greatest meaning for you personally. Your gift will make a significant impact in serving the needs of our community.

We must acknowledge

BGC Ottawa acknowledges that our work spans many Territories and Treaty areas and we are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers Elders who are with us today, those who have gone before us and the youth that continuously inspire us in the work that we do. BGC Ottawa's mission statement is to provide safe, supportive places where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships, and develop confidence and skills for life. We recognize that these values are impossible to attain without the ongoing guidance and partnerships with Indigenous peoples.
