Some 400 Boys & Girls Club members spent the summer participating in dance, music, art and computer classes, and many outdoor activities, such as swimming, skating or gardening. Club members also enjoyed bowling, going to the movies or going out for pizza. Field trip destinations included Carowinds, Emerald Point and Winston-Salem Dash baseball games. A soccer camp at Wake Forest University, the Cal Ripkin Quick Ball program and the Tommy Lambeth Summer Basketball League rounded out the activities.
A number of club members also attended a week at Camp Walter Johnson this past summer. The camp is located on High Rock Lake and attracts young people from across North and South Carolina.
The Summer Program at the Boys and Girls Club differs from the School Year Program. Summer is a time of fun and relaxation for children, and it provides an atmosphere that allows learning yet emphasizes "fun and recreation". Although the days are structured, boys and girls have more time to visit with each other and to make new friends.
It is the desire of the staff of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club to provide the greatest summer possible for your son or daughter. To ensure a smooth running and safe program, we do have rules and guidelines that must be followed. These guidelines are outlined in this packet. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Pappi Conrad, Unit Director at the Ken Carlson Boys & Girls Club at (336) 788-6563, or Odette Y. Sanchez, Unit Director at the International Boys & Girls Club at (336) 788-6563.
