Each summer, kids get the chance to slow down, catch their breath, and take a break from the structure of the school year.  At the same time, many youth are priced out of the kinds of activities that can keep them engaged, learning and thriving throughout the summer. But not at our Clubs. 

For eight amazing weeks this summer, our Boys & Girls Clubs are offering affordable, day-long camps filled with the kinds of activities kids LOVE. From arts & crafts and water play to science experiments, sports and field trips, our Clubs provide safe, engaging summer programs for more than 500 local youth in a fun-filled and comprehensive way that’s not available anywhere else in our County.

This summer, with the support of caring community partners like you, our Clubs will provide:

  • More than 35,000 free healthy meals
  • Over $270,000 in summer program scholarships
  • A wide range of activities to spark curiosity, learning, and fun
  • Daily swim lessons and rec swim
  • Field trip adventures to the movies, beach, aquarium, boardwalk and more


With your support, we’ll make this a summer our Club kids will remember, while preventing summer learning loss and preparing for the transition back to school.  Join us!
