I like the BGC Thompson because “we get to go to the park, and do fun activities” like “bowling.” I come to the BGC Thompson “because its lots of fun and I get to draw lots of pictures.” My favorite activity at the BGC Thompson is “making crafts.” My favorite snack that the BGC Thompson has to offer is “muffins.”
