After School & Summer Camp Program

There are several programs that we run throughout the year.

Triple Play which demonstrates how eating smart, keeping fit and forming positive relationships add up to a healthy lifestyle. The multi-faceted program promotes health and wellness for Club members, ages 6-18, teaching them how to become more active and new ways to handle stress, maintain a healthy body and form positive relationships.

SMART Girls, which enhances girls’ physical and emotional health. The program combines informational and experiential learning activities to help girls, ages 8-17, develop the knowledge and skills necessary to practice healthy lifestyle choices.
Passport to Manhood is a curriculum for adolescent boys that addresses several key areas of development while stressing and promoting positive values and behaviors. Passport to Manhood promotes and teaches responsibility for male Club members ages 11-14. At a critical and transitional time in their adolescence, boys are encouraged to adopt the character virtues that will give them a positive head start in their journey to manhood.

Club Tech program, which teaches members critical technology skills to help them advance their academic and professional success. The Club Tech program will ensure that youth of all ages have access to state-of-the-art technology and are able to learn the necessary technology skills to prepare for continued education and the workplace.

Torch Club program, which provides a small group of Club members, ages 11-13, with the opportunity to enrich their lives and the lives of others through service, leadership and by demonstrating good character. Students fill out an application to apply to become junior staff and are accepted based on leadership skills and responsibility. They assist with younger children, help staff with a variety of duties, and are instructed to lead by example.

These programs listed above are our main program areas.

In addition, we provide homework time and assistance. They have Power Hour, which is an hour of reading, writing, and homework/project time. Staff help to monitor completion of homework, accuracy, and understanding.

We also offer a summer camp program, which is seven weeks long, eight hours a day, Monday-Friday. Field trips, special activities such as swimming, picnicking, movies, bowling, etc. are included in summer camp.

We provide a healthy after school snack and a nutritional meal before sending them home. We cook the meals in-house and depend on food donations and monetary donations designated for our meal program.
