Who/When/What:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade is once again offering exciting summer fun during its 2018 Summer Program for area youth, starting Monday, June 11 through Friday, Aug. 3, 2018.

Registration will open during Spring Break, which begins April 26, at four of the five Clubs, including the Hank Kline Club, Northwest Club, South Beach Club and Kendall Club. Just like the after-school program during the school year, the Summer Program enables children to learn values such as friendship, honesty and teamwork by providing a safe and secure environment where they can develop into productive and independent young adults.

The Summer Program is open to all boys and girls ages 5–16 (must be entering kindergarten in the fall; cannot turn 17 before Sept. 1, 2018), and run Monday–Friday from 9 a.m.–5 p.m.; however, counselors will be available to supervise children beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 6 p.m.

The Summer Program at all Clubs is staffed by qualified full-time and summer staff.

During the Summer Programs, children participate in fun indoor activities such as arts & crafts, computer room, game room, table games, movie room, basketball and much more. Outdoor activities include all types of organized group games, and swimming at the South Beach Club. Field trips are also offered to exciting locations and events such as the movies, bowling, Chuck E. Cheese’s, swimming field trips for older groups and more.

A free nutritious lunch and afternoon snack is provided daily at no additional cost, or children may bring their own lunch. At each Club, awards will be given to recognize the boys and girls who have made a positive contribution to the Summer Program.
