The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte is now accepting applications for its summer day camp program. The program begins on June 15 and is being offered at three locations in Charlotte (Marsh Road, Belmont Avenue and Milton Road) and one in Monroe (located at Community Church of Monroe).
“We understand that many families in our community are in desperate need of activities for their children this summer,” said Marty Clary, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. “While the programs will look a little different than years past due to COVID-19, we recognize the importance of being there for kids in our community. In these difficult times, when ‘summer brain drain’ is expected to be worse due to the pandemic and there’s heightened concern about mental health, our programs are critical to helping children succeed.”
The Boys & Girls Club summer day camp program includes a number of special activities: arts, STEM projects, life skills, healthy habits programs and more. The cost is $50 per week at the three Charlotte Clubs. Lunch is provided daily. Reduced rate scholarships are available, as well. To ensure safety, a number of protocols are being implemented, including daily temperature checks, social distancing when possible, and the wearing of masks.
