The Boys and Girls Club is excited to announce PAL!

Ocean Beach School District received a 21st Century Learning Communities grant through a partnership with our local Boys and Girls Club and Save the Children. Through this wonderful collaboration we are now able to implement a Peninsula Active Learning (PAL) center as part of our Power Hour and Project Learn programming.

PAL programming will begin on Tuesday, October 14th at both the Boys and Girls Club located in the Ilwaco High School and Ocean Park Elementary. PAL will continue to run every Monday through Thursday (excluding non-school days) for most of the school year.

Your child will arrive at the after school program and first get a nutritious supper, then receive homework help and if needed, tutoring from school district experts! All youth will participate in Power Hour to get their homework done, and we will work closely with the school district to offer your child the boost and enrichment that they want and need. Youth will go on to receive enrichment opportunities in science, technology and Healthy Choices through the remainder of the PAL program which ends at 6:00 PM Monday – Thursday.

Other opportunities at our club in Ilwaco this year include:

  • Zumba Kids is every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:30-6:00 PM permission slips are available at the front desk.
  • Zumba adult and family 6:00 – 7:00 PM. If your child is 12 and up they can participate in this fun activity with you (younger members must attend Zumba Kids) Adults $6 / students free!
  • Walking field trips to study science and nature most Fridays!
  • PGA Golf Academy 6 sessions (TBD)
  • Toastmasters for Youth January and February 2015 ( beginner public speaking classes)
  • Torch Club and other Leadership opportunities
  • Cooking with Rita and Barbra
  • Robotics and much more!

Please remember the club is closed on Monday, October 13th (non-school day) as we prepare for these exciting changes and opportunities for your child.

We look forward to your continued support and feedback as we pilot these new programs!
