July 2018
Hello, Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous' Supporter!

What an exciting summer we have had so far! So many new members, new staff, and new adventures. At the Club members have made new friends, played water games, created art projects such as pottery, Cob, worked in the garden and explored the meadow through our Brain Gain program.

I'd like to remind you that our summer program ends August 3rd. That last week you will have a chance to come and visit the Club and get a tour from one of our Club Ambassadors! We will display all the great Arts & Crafts work we have done and you can hear first hand about the summer from our members. Club tours are available from July 31st - August 2nd 8:00 am - 5:00pm. And on August 3rd (our last day) we will be celebrating with the Members and Staff.

Please make sure your child brings a bathing suit, Sun screen, a towel and dry cloths to change into.
Be sure to check our lost and found before then. Sign ups have started for the 2018-2019 school year (Membership application available on our website) and the membership fee is $20. Don't forget to sign your child up if you haven't already by coming to our administrative office at 803 Cedar Street in Mt. Shasta.

A safe and supervised environment with snacks and meals, homework help and fun programs is the place to be after school!

See below for upcoming events the Club is participating in. And see photos from our 4th of July parade float.

Thank you for all of your support and for sending your kids to the Club.

All the best,

Treasure Hunt!
Mt. Shasta has been designated the very first Pacific Crest Trail Town and we're celebrating! Club staff will be in the middle of the 400 block of N. Mt. Shasta Blvd. with a treasure hunt that takes place in the designated downtown area and will include following clues, solving riddles, learning Mt. Shasta and Pacific Crest Trail trivia, and performing mini challenges.

Treasure maps, a cornhole game, and face painting will be available, and four checkpoints throughout the downtown area for the treasure hunt. Come on down Saturday, 12noon to 4pm.

Volunteer and make the difference in a child's life.
Have a special skill? Some time to give? Nothing makes a larger impact on a child than having a positive adult to look up to. No matter if it is 1 hour a week, 4 hours every day, or even just something special for one time only, Boys & Girls Club volunteers make a huge impact on Members. Contact our office if you're interested in volunteering at
