#ExploreSummer at the Mount Baker & LaVenture Clubs: These Middle School Club programs will be offered 8:00am-2:00pm, Monday-Friday, July 6th-August 13th.

Club Connection: Anticipating there are families not in need of full-day programs, but interested in some regular supports and interaction for their children, we are launching Club Connection. The program will operate from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Club members can enroll in one of four options: 1. Monday through Friday, with the intention to attend nearly every day; 2. Monday/Wednesday, attending twice weekly; 3. Tuesday/Thursday, attending twice weekly; 4. Friday Only. This will include an afternoon snack, learning supports and tutoring, social-emotional learning activities, enrichment programs, and of course, fun. Club members will be placed into a cohort and remain with that cohort for the entirety of the program, for health and safety reasons.

Participants in either program are required to wear masks unless there is a documented medical exception.

While our program model currently limits the free-choice developmental activities Boys & Girls Clubs are known and loved for, our staff has worked hard to recreate the fun Club experience our members and families have come to expect. 

Safety: A daily health screening will occur, and entrance will be subject to fulfilling that screening and a temperature check on arrival. For families who may have children they are comfortable walking to the Club on their own, we are working on an app-based system for parents to complete the health screening in advance for admission to the program each day.  

TEEN HOURS: Our current focus remains on providing younger members with enhanced services to assist working families. However, there are plans to operate bi-weekly Teen Nights beginning as early as October 2nd, from 6:00-10:00 pm. Teen members are those attending middle school or high school. 

WHO CAN ATTEND THE CLUB? Any youth ages 6 (or completed Kindergarten) to 18. Buses are available from select schools during normal operations. No transportation is currently available.

MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION: All membership registration and interaction regarding the payment of dues and fees is conducted through the new iMis for Clubs system, which launched Summer, 2020.

Mount Vernon Club receives new HVAC units

This past summer, in the middle of a heat wave, the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club’s aging A/C and Heating units decided to call it quits. The financial impact facing the non-profit organization serving hundreds of kids was daunting. With Summer in full swing, and with kids in programming from 7am-6pm daily, CPI Plumbing & Heating came to the rescue. CPI began work immediately to look into repairing the units, donating their time and labor.

After many attempts and hours of work it was determined that the units would have to be replaced. CPI HVAC Manager Steve Murray immediately began working on finding a solution, working with local companies to make the replacement possible. They reached out to Gensco Inc. requesting that they donate the HVAC system, and Gensco agreed to donate two new units! The installation also required a crane, and Barnhardt Cranes was able to provide the crane free of charge. On October 5th, all three came together to complete the installation. When the project was complete, CPI’s leadership and advocacy resulted in $14,514.64 of labor and equipment donated to the Boys & Girls Club.

“Our experience with CPI has been wonderful. They showed a willingness to go above and beyond what was expected to help out the Club and the kids.” said Club Director, Angela Freeberg. “We survived the heat of the summer, and are also extremely grateful to them for our nice warm Club as the days get colder!”
