2020 SUMMER PROGRAMS UPDATE

Dear Club Family,

Summer is our favorite time of the year – a time when, historically, we’ve been able to serve our greatest numbers of kids with our greatest amenities, experiences and opportunities. Unfortunately, this summer is different. We regret to inform you that we will not be able to offer summer programming at full capacity this year.

Following COVID-19 related program closures and in accordance with enhanced state safety requirements, the Club will re-open, but only to a very limited number of youth this summer. This decision is based on guidance from state and local health officials and Boys & Girls Clubs of America. Attendance for the 2020 summer session has been prioritized for current members and families who utilized services with the greatest frequency throughout the 2019/2020 academic year. Qualifying families are being directly contacted by Club staff for enrollment.

This is an evolving situation. Program operations are contingent on community health and may be reduced or temporarily suspended, as circumstances evolve. The plan to re-open will depend on local and state guidance. If our community experiences a spike in cases, for example, membership may go down or we may be forced to temporarily close. Please stay connected for program updates and details on future after-school services on our website www.bgchendersonco.org and via social media www.facebook.com/bgchendersonco/. We will post all information as soon as it is available.

We know that the Club is an important partner for hundreds of local families. Right now, we also know the need for quality support is more acute than ever. It is our intention to safely serve as many young people as possible, and we will grow our future capacity responsibly, as we are able, with the continued guidance of health and safety experts.

We deeply appreciate your patience and understanding as we move into this new, and hopefully temporary, operating model. We miss all of our members and look forward to seeing each of you as soon as possible.

With appreciation,

Julia Hockenberry
Executive Director
