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.
Nutrition: 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. Last summer, across our service area, we facilitated more than 30,000 meals and snacks. 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. We know that our kids have growing bodies, and when we can assist in ensuring they have the fuel they need, our entire community wins. Make sure to stop by a Club or service location to #ExploreNutrition this summer!
Weekly Themes: When you choose to #ExploreSummer at the Boys & Girls Club, you can rely on purposeful and intentional programs and activities to engage youth of all ages. This year, each week is centered around a theme, from which all elements of engagement begin.

Field Trips: Getting out and about is an important component of the summer, and at the Boys & Girls Club, we are excited to offer field trips locally and beyond in Washington State. All participating youth will need to arrive no later than fifteen minutes prior to the announced departure time, and be wearing a Club shirt—provided at registration or on the first day of summer. Youth not in their Club shirt will not be able to attend the Club that day, as Clubs are closed during these trips, and for safety reasons, we require all traveling youth to be easily identifiable at all times. On field trip days, youth must arrive at the Club at least fifteen minutes prior to departure time**. When the bus leaves, the Club remains closed until return.
