My daughter is grateful to have gone to summer camp this year. Being able to be around kids her age helped pull her outside of a dark place. She needed the interaction with her friends after being home for so long.

I lost my dad was I was in 7th grade. And swimming was kind of like an outlet form me. Even if you are having a rough day…the coaches are always there for you. Whether you need advice or anyone to listen.

The Club is a home that not only houses me, but one that houses my development as a leader, an athlete, and more importantly, as a human being well equipped to make a difference in the world.

In Mrs. Cutri’s club, we all came together to form a community and despite everyone coming from different walks of life, we worked together to achieve a common goal.

My favorite part of the day is just putting smiles on everyone, especially the kids’ face and making them go home happy and forget about everything on the outside. All the conselors are like family, even if you are new, everyone loves and respects each other. And it’s just…like an excellent vibe.

BGCNW counselors played such a vital role in my upbringing and now, having the opportunity to do the same for our members is such and honor.
Nethmi D., Counselor/Graduate
The Club has provided such a consistent and magical place for my kids since we moved to the area. It fosters an incredible sense of community and family. It gives my kids enough structure that they can thrive, but it also provides a place for them to explore their passions, meet new people, and have fun. They are so excited to go every day and see their friends, teachers, and people they really look up to. It’s really so special!
Devin M., Club Kid Parent
I grew up in the club – from 3rd grade to beyond graduation. I learned all my values here. The Club is my life, and I’ll always come back here because it’s the place to be!
Lamar S., Club Alumni
BGCNW is my home away from home and a place where I have found my closest friends and mentors. The club has helped shape me into the person I am today and has inspired me to want to give others the same experience here that I have had.
