The Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County is proud to offer camps for kids (ages 5 -15) at Spruce Street Community Center in Lawrence. Our programs are designed to enhance our campers’ self-esteem and leadership skills through structured activities and interactive themes. They experience a place designed to create happy memories and encourage self-exploration.
Specialty Camps. Does your child have a love of natural sciences, drones, engineering, science, digital arts, music, dancing, gymnastics, or cooking? Why not continue supporting their passions during the summer? We have partnered with area experts to offer new exciting camps for various ages such as: Dinosaur Detectives presented by Academy of Natural Science, Secret Agent Lab by Mad Science, Drone Superhero Missions by Drobots Company, Science Smorgasbord by Rutgers 4-H, Hip-Hop & Rap by East Coast Recording, TV Production Club by Wickline Casting, and much more.
Kids Camp, ages 5-10. We offer weekly themed activities and trips to tap into the curiosity and wonder of all our campers. Campers will enjoy swimming, outdoor play, arts & crafts, reading, arcade, sports, and other fun activities including a brand new water slide! Each week campers will also take a field trip to local attractions.
Summer Travel Camp, ages 11-15. Campers participate in various fun and diverse field trips to local/regional attractions throughout the week. Some of our confirmed trips include: Atlantic City’s Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Camden Aquarium, Camelback Beach, Dave and Busters, Dorney Park, Elite Rock Climbing Funplex, and Six Flags.
Last Blast Camp, from August 20 to 31. Each day at Last Blast Camp, campers either go on a field trip, have a theme day (Weird Science, Beach Bash, etc.) or can choose between featured activities of their choice (sports, cooking, science, arcade, computers, art, etc.) to design their own camp experience.
Here’s what parents said in our survey:
“My child had a blast this summer! The field trips were wonderful and I can’t wait for my child to come back next year.”
“Both of my two children really enjoyed themselves this summer at the BGC. Thanks for making their summer camp experience wonderful.”
