Moving Forward 2020

“It’s amazing how the Club goes out of the way to put a smile on our kids’ faces. We got to be in our own parade! The food has been so helpful during this time. Simply put… activities that are safe & fun are important right now! And my son was thrilled to see his BGC teachers safely, he misses them! Thank you Boys & Girls Club for all that you do!” ~Club Parent

Hybrid Summer Program 2020

How will this hybrid programming work?

Our staff, consisting of trained youth professionals, are working diligently to create programming that is accessible for our members who will be at the Club once we reopen, as well as those who will remain at home this summer. Those members who will access Clubs virtually will have the opportunity to receive Club To-Go Kits every week to ensure their success, involvement, & most importantly, FUN!

We know that providing support to children, as our community begins to move forward, is essential to the future of Door County.

We are prepared to offer support!

A large focus of programming will center around avoiding summer learning loss. Due to the adjustments of learning platforms and effects of the pandemic, this focus may be more important than ever!
