This week is the best week of the year! For more than 75 years, Boys & Girls Clubs all across the nation have celebrated Boys & Girls Club week by recognizing the invaluable service Clubs bring to the communities and youth they serve.
This year, Boys & Girls Clubs are opening their doors and inviting community members to take a tour of Club Units.
To go hand in hand with that, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County is hosting speakers, partner events and educational programs all week long at our Club Units.
This week, our Units are partnering with Colorado State University (CSU), Fort Collins Children Theatre, CSU STEM Difference Makers, Animal House, Ballet Renaissance, Steve's Club, Lincoln Middle School and OtterCares.
Our West Loveland Unit will also be hosting a special speaker, Susan von der Lippe! Susan is a former Olympic swimmer who resides in Colorado. She will be sharing her story and goal setting activities with Club Members.
Some fun, educational programs happening this week includes: drama club, crossfit, robotics program, cooking class, bowling at Chipper's Lane, space camp, #WeOwnFriday teen night, Team Fashion, highway clean-up, and an Olympic field day event.
It is sure to be a jam packed week full of fun! Be sure to keep updated on our Facebook page for pictures from this amazing week.
