Explore Summer (7am-6:30pm): All day programs are offered to families at our Club, to help bridge the gap when youth need additional hours of service to remain safe, have fun, and be engaged. The tuition represents our cost of service to deliver quality programs for youth in our community for the week.

A morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack are included with tuition, as well as field trips. On field trip days, youth must arrive at the Club, wearing their Club shirt, at least fifteen minutes prior to departure time.** When the bus leaves, the Club remains closed until return.

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. 

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 to them on their first day of Explore Summer, or at registration. 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.
