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.

Young Marines Program Spotlight

As certified under the Marine Corps League, the Club operates a Young Marines Program led by our Young Marines Program Coordinator and instructed by military volunteers. The Young Marines Program, also known as the Paper City Young Marines Unit, is a youth education and service program for boys and girls, ages 8 through completion of high school. The Young Marines promotes the mental, moral, and physical development of its members. The program focuses on character building, leadership, and promotes a healthy, drug-free lifestyle.

Upon joining the Paper City Young Marines, youth undergo a 26-hour orientation program. The program is administered once a week for 2.5 hours and concludes with a full weekend encampment. This orientation program is affectionately called "Boot Camp." The youth learn general subjects such as history, customs and courtesies, close order drill, physical fitness, and military rank structure. After graduating from Young Marines "Boot Camp", the youth have the opportunity to learn more new skills, earn rank, wear the Young Marines uniform and work toward ribbon awards. Additional activities the youth engage include career explorations, college preparedness, mentoring, job shadowing, and other training opportunities. As awards for their accomplishments, Young Marines earn ribbons for achievement in areas such as leadership, community service, swimming, academic excellence, first aid, and drug resistance education.
