Boys & Girls Club In The News

Did you catch the FOX4 news segment featuring our Boys & Girls Club?

Our team was excited to host Emmy-winning reporter Jessica Alpern for a segment exploring our Summer Camp, which has five areas of focus:

  • Character and Leadership
  • Education and Career
  • Health and Lifestyle
  • The Arts
  • Sports, Fitness and Recreation

The FOX4 story noted that because of the pandemic, many students missed some key learning opportunities, including field trips, hands-on group activities and career exploration. That’s why the Boys & Girls Club’s Summer Camp is critically important in 2021. Watch the full story below.

Sponsor a Camper, Change a Life

The FOX4 story shared our “Sponsor a Camper, Change a Life” initiative. We still need your help to reach our goal of 150 camp sponsorships by this Friday, May 28. A single, tax-deductible donation of $500 will allow a student to participate in programs that are vital for their academic, social and emotional development.

National Boys & Girls Club Week

June 21-25 is National Boys & Girls Club Week, an annual celebration that shines a spotlight on the programs and people making a difference in the lives of Club members. Nationwide, Boys & Girls Club serve 4.6 million children and teens. Our Club alone serves more than 3,000 youth each year!

Students, staff and volunteers at the Nichols Campus in Naples and Bolch Campus in Immokalee will be recognizing National Boys & Girls Club Week. Each day has a different focus built around our recurring theme of “Whatever it takes.”

  • June 21: Whatever it takes to help kids stay on track
  • June 22: Whatever it takes to mentor tomorrow’s leaders
  • June 23: Whatever it takes to support health and wellness
  • June 24: Whatever it takes to be resilient
  • June 25: Whatever it takes to build Great Futures

We’ll be posting photos and videos all week on social media, so follow along as we highlight our incredible team!
