Oysters, Authors & Ale is back for the 9th time! Mark your calendars!

The BCSA is thrilled to announce the return of our annual fundraiser and we are delighted to invite you to be a part of this beloved event, on October 2nd, 2021.

What is the Oysters, Authors & Ale Auction (OAAA)?
This cozy, lively fundraising event gathers community members and guests to enjoy an evening showcase of novice and professional writers, live music, a terrific silent auction, and, of course, a sampling of west-coast oysters and locally crafted ales.

The OAAA is held in Autumn to raise awareness about adult literacy and to generate funds for future community literacy initiatives. The Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre have once again graciously donated their time and resources to support our cause, and the event will take place in their stunning Rix Centre for
Ocean Discoveries.

Tickets go on sale Monday, September 13th at 12:00 noon. Purchase tickets by emailing to arrange either and in-person purchase or an e-transfer. Please call us with any questions at 250-728-1220.

      Comments Off on Canadian Red Cross Babysitting Course

Ready to get your Babysitting certification? Here is your chance!

“The Babysitting course, refreshed and revised, now has a greater emphasis on First Aid skills. The Canadian Red Cross Babysitting course covers everything from managing difficult behaviours to essential content on leadership and professional conduct as a babysitter.”

“Babysitting promises to deepen and enhance the responsibility that older youth feel when caring for younger children. This updated curriculum, complete with new science, also provides improved learning when it comes to giving the appropriate care in the event of an emergency.” (Quoted from Canadian Red Cross website)

Course availability depends on enrolment numbers, so please get in touch with BCSA staff at 250-728-1220 or to let us know if you (or your child) will be interested in an upcoming course!
