Welcome to week 21 and post #83 of Club at Home! We’re in week four of summer programming, and while some of our members are back at the Clubs, we know many families are at home. We want to ensure there are fun and educational activities for you wherever you are! Today, find activities for members across all age groups, including edible art, LEGOs, journaling, and reading recommendations.

Meet Our Nurses

In order to ensure safety and good health for our members, BGCB has hired five additional nurses who are stationed at our Clubs during summer programming. Below, meet Mellisa, Berkshire Partners Blue Hill Club’s nurse!

“The staff has been doing a great job at cleaning all equipment and surfaces after each use, and ensuring that the children remain socially distant in the hallways, in the gym, outside, and in the classrooms.

“I love how the kids have an opportunity to stay active and maintain relationships with peers throughout the summer. Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston provides them with a safe space where they can reach their full potential!” 

Stay tuned for the next nurse spotlight on Friday.
