Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami Accepting New Members for Summer Camp



Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade (BGCMD) is thrilled to accept new members for its 2020 in-person Summer Camp, “Virtual Club” Summer Camp, and in-person Sports Conditioning Camp. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing efforts/CDC guidelines, BGCMD is offering a smaller, limited in-person Summer Camp and Sports Conditioning Camp.

“We are excited to offer our summer programs while taking every precaution to ensure the safety and protection of all youth in our programs ― the No. 1 priority of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, president of BGCMD. “These positive programs are very important to keeping our youth members engaged during the summer months.”

In-Person Summer Camp Program

Just like the after-school program during the school year, the Summer Camp 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.

It is offered at the Hank Kline, Northwest, Kendall and South Beach Clubs, and staffed by qualified full-time and summer staff. Children participate in fun indoor activities such as arts and crafts, computer room, game room, table games, movie room, basketball and much more. Outdoor activities include organized group games. Members are placed in groups of nine members per one adult staff.

The in-person Summer Camp program is open to all boys and girls ages 5–17 (must be entering kindergarten in the fall; cannot turn 17 before Sept. 1, 2018), and runs Monday–Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; however, counselors are available to supervise children from 8:15 a.m.–6 p.m.

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 Camp program.

To register, parents must come in person to the specific Club where their child(ren) will be attending the Summer Camp program. Mailed or faxed registration cards will not be accepted. Children will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis until the program is filled.

The price for the in-person Summer Camp program starts at $200 for the entire summer and is available at the following Clubs:

 

· Hank Kline Club, 2805 SW 32 Avenue Miami, FL 33133

· Kendall Club, 9475 North Kendall Dr. Miami, FL 33176

· South Beach Club, 1200 Michigan Avenue Miami, FL 33139
