Youth programs will be offered online for the 2020 season for kids as young as 3 years old through 12th grade. Our counselors have prepared nine weeks of crafts, STEM activities, athletic sessions, and more for our campers.

Group One is a program designed for children who will enter first grade in the fall and serves as a transition between Children's School and Boys' and Girls' Club. The morning program runs similar to Children's School, and the afternoon program (2–4 p.m.) takes place at Boys' and Girls' Club.

About the Program

Group One is a program designed for children who will enter first grade in the fall and serves as a transition between Children's School and the Boys' and Girls' Club.

This special full-day program (9 a.m.–noon and 2–4 p.m.) is held Monday–Friday and uses the Sheldon Hall of Education facilities in the morning and the Boys' and Girls' Club facilities in the afternoon.

The program includes active play, arts activities, swimming instruction and waterfront activities, nature programs, and special events. Children remain with the same teachers/counselors throughout the day. Each of two classes is limited to 36 participants.
