The summer programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Appleton and of Menasha are a popular choice for children, youth and families in the Fox Cities, and we are thrilled to make summer a fun learning experience for so many! We believe that summer is a great time to give kids opportunities to develop new friendships, play, continue to learn, and experience new things.
The summer programs at the Boys & Girls Club of Appleton and the Boys & Girls Club of Menasha will once again feature a wide-ranging array of fun and exciting programs. Sports and fitness, art activities, small group discussions, leadership and community service, field trips, Trips for Kids, baseball, Summer Brain Gain, and much, much more will among the many opportunities available again this year. Both Clubs will also once again be Summer Food Service Program sites and will offer breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack.
Enrollment for all youth at the Boys & Girls Club of Appleton and Menasha will take place between March 4th and April 4th. Summer Program Registration Forms must be turned in to either site location. Summer Program Registration Forms received after the April 4th deadline are not guaranteed acceptance into the Summer Programs at the Boys & Girls Club of Appleton and/or Menasha depending on each sites’ maximum capacity.
