While education systems and other nonprofit agencies scramble to meet the needs of their communities, the Boys & Girls Club is ready to welcome your kids for a fun summer camp experience! This summer the Club will offer a full-day summer camp from 7:30am - 5pm for youth ages 5-13 years only. The program located out of the Main Club on 70 Nick Cosmos Way operates from July 6th – August 21st and will include snack, lunch, project-based learning, enrichment activities, and much more.

COVID-19 school closures and recently traumatic events will have a devastating impact on academic achievement, youth development, and result in significant opportunity gaps. To combat this and better prepare our kids for next school year, HBGC is excited to announce that we will be implementing Summer Brain Gain – a Boys & Girls Club of America curriculum which is a fun, interactive learning program designed for summer in the Club! The weekly educational modules will include habitats and eco-systems, storytelling, STEM, and reading. Every week offers a component in either math, science or literacy!

Our Evening Teen Membership Program serving youth ages 12 - 18 is currently closed. Please check back for updates and announcements.

National Summer Food Service Program

Students may need a break from the classroom and virtual learning for the summer, but they shouldn’t have to miss out on nutritious meals and snacks critical to their healthy development. This is why the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke (HBGC) is participating in the National Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) facilitated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Starting July 6th and ending August 21st at Main Club site on 70 Nick Cosmos Way a snack and a lunch will be served to youth enrolled in our summer program Monday – Friday.

HBGC Dinner Club will also be operating this summer. A nutritious “Grab and Go” dinner and snack will be available to all youth 18 years and younger throughout the summer, regardless of Boys & Girls Club of Greater Holyoke membership. Dinners will be served from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM, Monday – Friday distributed at the following sites:

• Main Club located at 70 Nick Cosmos Way
• Beaudoin Village HBGC Satellite Unit located at 15 Barret Drive
