The Gymnasium finds fast and furious dodge ball games, basketball and bouncy ball fun and morning exercise classes with Sit-n-Fit and Dance Fit classes.  We have a recently upgraded Fitness Center whose daily usage is about 70 people. Then there is the “Green Room”  which offersmeeting space for our local clubs, artists, etc. The Whiting Center also hosts an annual “Spooktackular” Harvest Carnival with little ghost and goblins, cake walk and games galore.  A Holiday Bazaar is held annually, hosted by the Cultural Arts Association where one might find special gifts for Christmas. We also host Vineyard Tea, Pops Orchestra, Santa Party with Santa's Workshop, pancake breakfast and gifts for sale.  We also have pictures with Santa in his sled.

At the Whiting Center we have applications to reserve any of our associated amenities.  4-Island Lake has two reserve areas and Cub Lake has 5 reserve areas. Reservations for Town Center Campground or Water Canyon Campground are made at the Whiting Center.  Reservations require the property owner to come in person to the Whiting Center and bring their amenity card.  We also sell fishing permits for your guests and boat tags (that are required for all water vessels on 4-Island Lake).  A California fishing license is not required to fish in our lakes in BVS.

League sign-up forms are on the wall near the front desk inside the Whiting Center for current or upcoming events.

Table and chair rentals are available to reserve through the Whiting Center at a nominal fee.  The member is responsible for the pick up and return of all reserve items.

Current Fee Schedule can be found in the Recreation Guide, picked up at the Whiting Center or by contacting the Whiting Center at (661) 821-6641.
