Summer Day Camp for Children of Essential Workers
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is accepting applications from essential workers’ families, with priority to existing members, for a summer camp for 72 youth, ages 6 through 12 from Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with a team of 14 youth development staff, for a ratio of one staff per 12 youth. The Martin V. Smith Clubhouse summer camp programming plans and protocols for health and safety conform to the requirements and guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and state and local authorities.
Due to the limited number of children it can serve under these guidelines, the Club is accepting applications for the day camp slots for children of essential workers only. Priority will be given to existing Club member families and proof of essential employment is required. If applications exceed slots available, a lottery will determine who can attend.
Youth enrolled in the program must attend at least four days per week for four weeks and must commit to following strict hygiene and social distancing rules. The summer program will cost $100 per week and some scholarships are available for families unable to pay. Complete information and applications can be found here.
