Atlantic Superstore is the proud title sponsor of the BGC Prince County – Summerside After-School Program. This program utilizes three 15-passenger vans and a 60-passenger bus that travels to six schools in Summerside and Miscouche to pick up members. The children are transported back to BGC Summerside where they receive a healthy snack prepared by staff. While at the club the children are able to complete their homework, make crafts in the craft room, play in the gymnasium, play cards/board games, watch a movie in our theatre or go to our Billy Bridges park as part of structured programming offered until 6 pm Monday to Friday. Participants also get access to the Credit Union Place for swimming, bowling, use of the walking track and ice pad.
