With summer just around the corner, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County (BGCLC) is preparing to launch our largest and most comprehensive summer program to date. BGCLC will be providing out of school programming at eight separate locations throughout Larimer County during the summer starting on Monday, June 4th. Summer can be a vulnerable time in a youth’s development with potential lack of adult supervision, a loss in access to nutritious meals, and learning loss from being out of school. That is why the Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County strive to provide a safe place for youth that includes access
to healthy meals and educationally enriching programs.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County provides one of the only comprehensive, full-day, youth development programs offered at the affordable rate of $20 per year, per child. It is a part of the Boys & Girls Club’s mission to provide youth access to quality programming no matter their financial status.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County provides programming for youth between the ages of 6-18 years old. Programming is implemented in the areas of academic success, healthy lifestyles, and good character and citizenship. BGCLC also partners with other local organizations such as: The Food Bank for Larimer County, No Barriers, Poudre Wilderness Volunteers, Colorado State University, Nutrien, SAVA, Ballet Renaissance and more. These partnerships make it possible for Club members to have new and unique opportunities throughout the summer. The theme for our 2018 Summer Program is An Infinite Summer: Forever exploring, serving, and creating. This theme translates into giving youth opportunities in the areas of outdoor excursions, summer academic programming, artistic expression activities, and community service projects.

Kaycee Headrick, Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County, said, “We are proud to provide high quality programming for youth throughout the year, and especially in summer months when they need it the most. We know the need for these services are the highest during the summer which is why we have amplified our programming again this year. We are committed to further expanding services to young people in Larimer County so that every child has a safe place to go.”

While the Boys & Girls Clubs have been able to expand their services, there are still capacity challenges causing waitlists to occur. If you are interested in learning more about the Boys & Girls Clubs, including summer registration information, and volunteer information please call 970-223-1709.
