WARWICK, RI — As Rhode Island begins loosening pandemic restrictions, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Warwick is organizing Day and STEAM summer camp experiences.
“It’s time for kids to be kids again,” said BGCW chief executive officer Lara D’Antuono. “Summer camp provides girls and boys with safe and organized activities that get them outside and moving – essential to so many children who have been stuck indoors, isolated and unmotivated to stay physically fit.”
Traditional Day Camp
Parents who believe their youngsters will thrive with the traditional summer camp experience can enroll their sons and daughters in BGCW’s Day Camp run out of its Oakland Beach branch. In addition to games and arts and crafts, highlights of this camp include weekly field trips to the nearby Mansonic Youth Center featuring a kid-favorite pool and a choice of additional excursions to other popular locations such as Mystic Aquarium and Adventureland.
For kids needing an academic boost because they struggled with distance learning or just want to get ahead, BGCW’s new STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) Camp offers a combination of conventional camp fun and fascinating, hands-on activities that will have participants building computers, learning how magic tricks work, creating ‘flying objects,’ and more.
Both camps will follow strict safety protocols as they deliver engaging outlets kids need more than ever to be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.
“BGCW is committed to doing all we can to ensure our children have the appropriate opportunities and supports today that ensure bright tomorrows.” emphasized D’Antuono.
Children do not need to be residents of Warwick to attend camp as the Club is open to any child from anywhere. The Norwood Branch’s STEAM Camp is particularly easily accessible for parents traveling to-or-from work along Route 95.
