Summer Day Camp at the Boys & Girls Club

Summer Day-Camp at the Boys & Girls Club has arrived!  “We’re averaging over ninety kids a day,” says Executive Director, Michael Perez. 

The Club Staff are busy gearing up for extended operating hours and increased numbers of kids.  The Club will be open for nine weeks this summer, Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm. 

Club members will not only enjoy plenty of recreation and exercise, but also both educational and recreational field trips as well as classes on nutrition, etiquette, conflict resolution, vocational skills training and drug prevention. 
The demand for this kind of program is huge.  Club Site Director, Linda Fleming, notes that she opened summer registration on April 2 with 140 spots available and all spots were filled by April 25—less than four weeks later!
Families that inquire after all the spots are full will be placed on a waiting list that often tops one hundred names before the staff stops placing additional names on the list. 

If you would like to visit the Club for a tour and additional information, please contact Executive Director Michael Perez at or (409) 350-1268.
