Days at the Club will include a variety of educational activities focused around weekly themes, with opportunities for outdoor recreation, hands-on learning, and involvement in Boys & Girls Club National programs focused on Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and Good Character & Citizenship. Additionally, 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. 

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. 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 to them on their first day of Explore Summer, or at registration. **Field trip days will be communicated out to parents/guardians closer to the date.
