Bank of America has once again partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of El Dorado County to offer a summer program at White Rock Village in El Dorado Hills through Aug. 5

The club located at 2200 Valley View Parkway, will be open from noon to 6 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Children ages 5 to 18 are welcome. Each participant will receive a nutritious lunch and snack. Daily activities offered during the summer include arts and crafts, smart money management, positive decision making skills, game room, computer lab, leadership groups and field trips. The members will also have the opportunity to participate in a Talent Show at the Placerville Club and the summer grand finale “Day at the Lake” at Sly Park Reservoir.

The cost is absolutely free.

Last summer 105 children registered at the White Rock Village club, which took in an average of 40 children each day.

Boys & Girls Club of El Dorado County also uses facilities in Cameron Park, Georgetown and Pollock Pines. The main facility is located in Placerville. The club serve more than 1,600 children at its five locations. More than 80 percent of the club’s youth live at or below the poverty line and close to 70 percent live in single parent families, according to information provided by the Boys & Girls Club.

  1. I applaud Bank of America for stepping up again to support the Boys and Girls Club summer program. Investing in programs for our youth is the best money anyone can ever spend.
