The Dovercourt Boys and Girls Club began in 1957 for boys and girls from ages 7 to 17. Through the years they have expanded the program, and currently the club is for boys and girls ages 4-17. The Dovercourt Boys & Girls club have their own building along with a location at St. Anthony Catholic Elementary School which is right across from each other.

This program welcomes everyone with open arms and helps children and youth in developing their athletic, artistic, academic and social school. Since the positive staff have great attitudes when interacting, it reflects in the enthusiastic children and youth along with making them feel like they belong to a family. During this program children and youth will experience doing several activities which includes arts and crafts, swimming, tennis, drama, playing at the park as well as the gym. In addition, they go on field trips such as farms, movies and Wild Water Kingdom.

This club joined with Focus on Youth because “It’s a good program to get students working with children and it’s an opportunity to give back” Shelly (Dovercourt Staff). The heartwarming experience and individuals at Dovercourt make children and youth look forward to their day spent their day at the “best camp in the world”. – Mia (5 year old camper)
