We are excited to begin re-opening select Club locations, and invite you to register now for summer programming. In lieu of providing the traditional Club member experience during our shutdown period, Boys & Girls Clubs staff compiled a multitude of fun and educational activities for members and their families to enjoy. We encourage you to enjoy these activities to ensure learning continues at home.

To better serve Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee members at this time, our staff will continue to provide additional videos and activities for youth to enjoy. We invite you to keep this page bookmarked as we add more videos to this website as well as our Facebook page.
