Boys & Girls Clubs of SWVA 2023 Impact Report

What I loved most about being a Club kid this summer was going to the pool with my friends." —Breniyah, Grade 6

A safe, productive, and accessible place for S ummer F un In the summer of 2023, 482 youth attended Club at one of our 11 Summer Camp locations, making the most of a haven open for 10 hours, 4-5 days a week (depending on the site). Here, our Club stands as a secure and enriching space where young people can relish their summertime days. Amid the laughter and camaraderie, Club kids immerse themselves in reading challenges, partake in invigorating physical activities, contribute to community service projects, master culinary skills in cooking classes, welcome special partner visits, embark on enlightening educational field trips, and indulge in recreational adventures. Gratitude resonates as we extend our thanks to the benevolence of funding partners, ensuring that most Club families bear no financial burden for their children and teens to participate. Nourishing not just minds but bodies too, the Club offers a culinary embrace with breakfast, lunch, and morning and afternoon snacks for our growing youngsters. The Summer Camp Experience, a vital pillar of our holistic year-round youth development program, underscores our commitment to nurturing the potential of every child in our community.
