The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County is excited to launch Summer Academy 2023, an eight-week learning experience for youth ages 6-18 packed with engaging educational activities, sports camps, field trips, and more! 

We believe every child is capable of succeeding when provided safety, opportunity, and guidance. Yet the high cost of childcare limits options for many families seeking safe, structured, full-day programs that keep youth focused on positive activities and prevent the summer learning slide. 

With support from donors like you, and through creative collaborations with partner organizations across our community, we help prepare kids and teens for success by offering an entire summer of high quality, innovative programs for just $300 (less than half the cost of one week at many local summer camps).

This year, we are working to make this summer a transformational experience for 1,000 local youth. With a $600 donation you can sponsor a safe, fulfilling summer for one of these amazing kids, including:

  • Monday through Friday 8am – 6pm supervised care at our Salinas and Seaside clubhouses
  • Healthy, nutritious meals served daily
  • Summer camp t-shirts
  • Weekly excursions to local points of interest
  • Entry fees for admission to certain venues 
  • Sports camps and clinics (football, basketball, soccer, tennis, golf)
  • Incentive prizes club members can earn through participation
  • Transportation to all venues.  

Please consider sponsoring one or more youth today. We appreciate gifts of any amount. With your help, the kids who need us most will enjoy a meaningful, memorable summer experience through the Boys & Girls Club.

You can make a difference!

Your gift will double thanks to a special summer matching fund, up to $150,000! That means your donation will have twice the impact, empowering learners everywhere to reach their highest potential!
