Summer is just around the corner, and it’s time to starting planning for your child’s summer fun in a positive place.

- Gym, outdoor activities & water games
- Arts & crafts, scrapbooking, cooking & clubs

- Sports leagues & fashion clubs
- Great field trips & more!
There is a $10 registration fee, and the daily fee for summer KIDSTOP is $25.25. The rate for children attending summer school is $21.25. Children are eligible to attend KIDSTOP the summer before they start kindergarten. A morning and afternoon snack are provided, but your child should bring a lunch with a beverage.

Summer Brain Gain
Keep your kids on track this summer with Summer Brain Gain – a learning loss prevention program developed specifically for Boys & Girls Clubs!
Summer Brain Gain is filled with fun activities for elementary school students. Supported by Disney, each module takes a project-based learning approach: youth engage in a process of learning through discovery, creative expression, group work and a final project or production. As a result, kids develop higher-order thinking skills through the Summer Brain Gain modules while staying on track for the coming school year.
