What We Offer

BGC Stettler & District offers a variety of social recreational opportunities for youth 6 – 18 years old. Each program is based upon the core values of BGC Canada. We encourage families to choose programs based on interest rather than for the purpose of child care.     We are not a child care facility.

For all after school programs, transportation from all Stettler schools is available. There may be a fee for this service.

Where are we located?

BGC Stettler & District operates under the umbrella organization of Heartland Youth Center in Stettler, Alberta. We are located at 5002 - 47 Street.

How Do I Become a Member?

Yearly memberships can be purchased for $20/person or for $45/family of 3 or more children. Please email us at or come see us to fill out a membership form and discuss what programs you are interested in.  Some programs have additional fees.

Subsidies and/or alternative payment arrangements are available if you are unable to pay membership, transportation and/or program fees. No child will ever be turned away due to a lack of funding. Please contact us at 742-5437 for more information.
