The Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club, a.k.a. “The Club that Beats the Streets”, is a fun-filled program that not only offers kids the chance to get involved during the summer through their amazing summer camps, but also throughout the year with their after school and weekend programming.
First opening their doors to young boys and girls in 1958, the Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club has grown to accommodate over 100 campers age 4-17 each summer at both their main location and at St. Anthony’s Catholic School across the street. Their facilities at their main location (180 Westmoreland Avenue) includes a pool, activity rooms, plus a playground and soccer field right outside!
The Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club have been associated with the Focus on Youth program for several years now and employ many Focus on Youth staff every year to help out and ensure the successful running of camp throughout the summer months. “It gives youth the opportunity to gain valuable experience working with kids,” says Mannie D’Elia, Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club program director.
