School’s almost out, and summer is just around the corner. At the Boys & Girls Club, that means it’s time to prepare for full-day summer break programs so kids still have a fun, safe place to go while parents are working hard to support their families. The days are packed with exciting educational activities, fantastic field trips, fun sports and fitness programs, thrilling carnivals and special events, and so much more!
We’re especially excited about our first summer in the Oak View community. The Club’s new Oak View Branch first opened its doors last October and has been offering great youth programs every day after school during the school year. With help from grant funding and generous donors like you, the Boys & Girls Club is pulling its resources together to add an 8-week summer session to the program.
The Oak View summer program will still be absolutely free for the kids and will include a special reading program to help prevent summer learning loss, cooking and nutrition classes with a healthy snack to make sure kids get enough to eat, and plenty of fun, enriching activities to keep kids engaged and active. Families in the neighborhood are excited that their kids will have so many great things to do over the summer, and the Club is thrilled to give kids a safe alternative to being out on the streets.
From all of us here at the Boys & Girls Club, have a safe and happy summer! Thank you for being part of the Boys & Girls Club family!
