Staff and a few campers!

At St. Alban’s, they strive to maintain and strengthen their core services to children and youth while growing to meet the varied and changing needs of our communities.
St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club offers kids a chance to bond with peers their own age through sports activities and outdoor games. This allows them to learn comradery and teamwork skills that they would not be able to attain in an at home environment. They also benefit from a healthy active lifestyle and leadership mentorship from positive young role models.

Campers at the St. Alban’s Boys and Girls Club are always full of enthusiasm and greatly reflect the energy of their camp counselors. It was great to see kids excited and immersed in sports such as rugby, one which not many campers had previously had the opportunity to try. The camp recognizes that kids love trying new things and take advantage of this thirst in their own backyards.
