Boys & Girls Club Hosts Fun Spring Fling

The Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club in Wellington held its annual Spring Fling family gathering on Friday, April 10.

Students and parents enjoyed an afternoon of fun while meeting the staff at the club, exploring the club and discovering the programming available this summer.

“Parents know that once spring arrives, it’s time to start thinking about summer camps,” Club Director Kenda Peterson said. “The Spring Fling gave parents the opportunity to learn about the camp and our aftercare program, while the kids had fun getting their faces painted, playing football and other activities in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.”

The club offers quality after-school programming as well as summer programming for ages 6 to 18, including arts, recording and dance studios, a full gymnasium, a science lab and a computer lab. Additionally, there is STEAM programming with two teachers on site.

“This was a great opportunity for club members and the community to see what our club has to offer,” said Board Member Nicole Hessen, who helped organize the event.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County works to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders.

The Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club is located at 1080 Wellington Trace in Wellington. For more information, contact Peterson at (561) 790-0343 or
