Our summer club attendance is averaging 85 at the Tennessee Unit and 115 at the Virginia Club. The Teen Center is going strong with 15 kids most days. We are keeping kids, and their minds, engaged and active over the summer. The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Mountain Empire are at the forefront of making out-of-school-time fun and productive for our young people, so they don’t fall behind academically. This is a nationally sanctioned Boys & Girls program called Summer Brain Gain. From the arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), our programs are helping to prevent summer learning loss. We are also pleased to introduce the Disney Nature Programs this summer. Jungle Book, Wings of Life, and Oceans are all engaging programs designed by Disney for our children to learn more about the environment, geography and biology.
