Summer Programs



Summer programming will run from June 10 - August 2, and will include swimming, crafts, guest speakers, and lots more!
Our hours for 2019 will be 7:30 AM - 5:30 PM.


Registration is first come, first served. Our program WILL FILL UP, so get your application in early.

Registration will open for all renewing or current members on March 1. All others may begin registering on March 15.

Half of our spots will be reserved for those who qualify for free or reduced lunch until May 1.

Our summer programs are open to students going into 3rd through 7th grade (2019-2020 school year) for our Edgewood Middle School site, as well as rising 8th through 12th grade students (2019-2020 school year) at our Wooster High School Teen Center site. Starting in March, find registration forms at the bottom of this page. 

***Please note: Boys & Girls Club may DELAY the start of the summer program if the Wooster City School District’s calamity days impact the end of the school year. If this occurs, fees will be reimbursed or reallocated within your child’s account. **

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Due to an unfortunate loss of grant funding in early March 2019, Boys & Girls Club of Wooster increased fees on March 15. Any registration forms collected after this date will follow the fee structure below. BGCW is dedicated to serving all youth. Please contact us if you or your family needs assistance paying for your program fees.

The Educational Difference

Much like our after school program, our summer program will have a focus on education. In our efforts to curtail summer learning loss, certified teachers and paraprofessionals will assist our members in both language arts and math several days a week for grades 3-6. But don't worry, our curriculum won't feel like your child is doing a double-take of the school year. We have plenty of summer activities and hands-on learning experiences to keep your child entertained, while still challenging them to use their brain - even on summer vacation!

Drop-in Programs - Teen Center

We understand that your high school student may not need a full day program, which is why BGCW’s Teen Center is offering drop-in programs several times a week. Programs will range from pick-up basketball to leadership activities and field trips. All drop-in programs are $5 each, and will last up to 2 hours. Payment is due on arrival. Some programs may have additional fees or require advanced sign-up. If your child stays longer than 2 hours at BGCW, you will be billed the weekly fee for service. All youth attending drop-in programs must have a membership form on file (the first 3 pages of this form) and pay the membership fee. Specific times, dates, and activities will be released in May.
