This is what a regular day looks like: In the morning, the staff start their days by giving the kids the choice of any activity. After their activities, they play tennis and high energy games at the local park. After lunch, kids have the opportunity to be creative as they do different crafts they can bring home to their families.

Mary Ward Boys and Girls Club ensures that they help the kips find their passion and to develop them. Whether it is sports, arts, or even cooking, the counsellors make sure that there is never a dull moment. Campers can even find their passions through reading and writing workshops!

 The discovery of what the kids enjoy is the most vital goal of Boys and Girls Club. Every week, kids go on a trip and swim at their local pool, or attend weekly trips. These counsellors aim to make the kids feel motivated and channel their positive energy to keeping a lively community.
