• Explore Summer with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Skagit County

    April 26, 2019

    Clubs in Anacortes, Burlington, Concrete, Sedro-Woolley, and Mount Vernon, including LaVenture & Mount Baker will be in operation this summer, offering extended hours, themed weeks, meals & snacks, field trips, and purposeful & intentional programs and activities that engage youth of all ages. Rates, hours, and ages vary between Clubs, so be sure to visit www.skagitclubs.org for more information or contact your local Club. 

    Days at the Club will include a variety of educational activities focused around our weekly themes, with opportunities for outdoor recreation, hands-on learning, and involvement in Boys & Girls Club National programs focused on Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and Good Character & Citizenship. Additionally, one of the key components of #ExploreSummer is Summer Brain Gain and Summer Brain Gain: READ—six-week modules of fun, engaging activities designed to address summer learning loss. Each week is focused on a theme and provides a variety of activities focused on literacy, math, and other skills. All Summer Brain Gain modules are aligned with Common Core standards, and provide opportunities for youth to learn through project-based activities, creative expression, and team collaboration. 

    This summer, through partnerships with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) we are able to provide fresh, nutritious snacks and meals to youth in our Clubs and communities, at no cost to the child. In some communities, we partner with local School Districts and bridge the gap in service, and in others, Boys & Girls Clubs serve as the lead agency. Specific meal offerings and service times will be released as we get closer to summer, please check our website and Facebook page for more info in the coming months.
