Great programs and fun planned for 8-week session

The Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena announced today its first-time-ever online registration system is open and taking summer applications. Unlike the month of May in previous years, the Club believes the new system will alleviate long lines of parents waiting to fill out paperwork, and will lessen time spent for both families and staff. Cost of the Summer Session for 6 – 12 year olds is $20 per week for 8 weeks, plus a $100 Enrollment Fee which will be credited back in the Fall if a child attends Club programs year-round. Teens are always free. All registration materials are also now available in English and Spanish.
“We are listening to our families, and adapting our ways,” said CEO Lisa Cavelier. “It’s time to make our registration system more efficient for families and staff. We are excited the portal is now open, and are making plans for a full and wonderful Summer Session.”
Summer Session programs will include lots of physical activity, sports, and games, in addition to addressing “summer slide” with high-yield, fun activities focusing on reading, writing, math, and science. Open swim is also a popular Club activity on hot summer days, and a variety of field trips are in the works. The Club operates two locations: 2020 N. Fair Oaks Avenue and 3230 E. Del Mar Blvd. in Pasadena.
