Spring Break brought a lot of smiles at the Boys & Girls Club of Vista. Club members participated in a Lego challenge to build a zipline car that would transport a Spring bunny. We enjoyed a trip to the Oceanside Surf Museum. While our field trip to Handel’s was cancelled due to rain, the Club kids enjoyed an ice cream sundae party at the Club. Basketball skills clinics geared up Club kids for our upcoming basketball camps.
Summer registration is happening now! Our camps are designed to keep kids and teens learning, active, and engaged through the school breaks. With weekly themed activities and flexible hours to participate, camps offer affordable support for families when school is out.
Enjoy a full day of fun at the Club! Activities include:
- STEM activities
- Arts and crafts
- Workforce Development (let us know if your business would be interested in a visit from our kids)
- Outdoor education and healthy lifestyles
- Leadership Clubs
Register for field trips online– space is limited! Summer trips include: The Wave, Skyzone, Boomers, Indoor Skydiving, Laser Tag, Bowling, and the San Diego Zoo.
When school is out, the Club is in. We hope you can join us!

Share a Positive Memory with a Club member on May 11th during Kids Night Out
Do you want to make a positive difference in a child’s life in just one night? You can be that positive influence sharing a lasting Club memory during Kids Night Out.
Each mentor and their assigned Club member competes in fun carnival-themed activities that highlight our three priority outcome areas: Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles, and Character & Leadership. Adults will learn first hand about the work the Club does and how much it means to Club kids.
Adults and Club members share a meal together, complete team games finishing with a special awards presentation at 7:30 pm. Make a difference getting to know the next generation of leaders in our community.
We are looking for event sponsors from $250 and up including T-shirt and Dinner sponsors to help make this event memorable.
More info and registration can be found here.

Volunteer Spotlight – Our Cesar Chavez Day of Service was a HUGE success! We had 26 volunteers from California State University San Marcos and Mira Costa College who put together 400 book kits for our Club kids to take home.
They read one on one with our Kindergarten and First Grade Club kids and even played some fun games in the gym. VOLUNTEER
