Boys and Girls Club teams up with Pine Cove to offer “Camp in the City” this summer | Community Spirit
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas, or BGCET, will be offering a summer camping program for Kindergarten through 5th graders with the help of a very special partner, Pine Cove, who will bring their special brand of action-packed fun, including outdoor activities, sports, interactive Bible studies, and high-powered “Club,” a mixture of songs, worship, stories, and skits to the summer camp.
“We are excited about teaming up with Pine Cove,” says BGCET Main Campus Executive Director Amy Avants, “We are mixing the strengths of two great organizations to the benefit of our kids.”
The program is meant to bring a “summer camp” experience to as many children in Tyler as possible and is seeking to help those who need it the most and who may not be able to afford a summer camp experience this summer.
The weeklong camps will run for 10 weeks, starting the week of June 6-10.
“Spaces are limited,” says Avants, “So parents may want to start planning now which weeks to enroll their children.”
Sign up begins at the main BGCET campus on Thursday, March 24th from 7:30am to 1pm for those already enrolled with BGCET. The public is invited to sign up on Friday, March 25th from 7:30am to 1pm. There is a $20 enrollment fee for new members.
The cost is $120 per week per child.
“The kids in Tyler are going to be so blessed,” says Avants, “You can’t get this kind of value anywhere else.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of East Texas exist to inspire and equip young people to reach their full potential, according to the BGCET mission statement.
The BGCET main campus is located at 504 W. 32nd, one block off North Broadway, in Tyler.
