Summer Registration Opens Monday, January 14 for the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh

Summer registration opens Monday, January 14th at the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh and our calendar is packed with exciting things for kids and teens ages 5-18! Pre-registration and the first week’s payment are required in order to sign up children 5-12 years old.

There will be 275 spots for kids ages 7-12 and 80 spots for kids ages 5-6 years old in our summer program. Spots fill up fast so you are encouraged to register now. We will serve children on a first come, first served basis. There is no quota for teens.

Registering your child means they will get to take part in all the Club has to offer including programs like Little Brewer’s Baseball, Lego League, Healthy Habits Cooking, Reader’s Café, STEM, Girls Etiquette & Afternoon Tea, STRIDE Academy, Swimming with the Oshkosh YMCA and the Summer Reading Program with the Oshkosh Public Library just to name a few.

Plus, there are a bunch of exciting field trips lined up. All 7-12 year olds are placed in a group at the beginning of summer and are given a list of five field trips that are included with their summer fee. Three of those trips will be to the Club’s day camp in New London, Camp Radford. 5-6 year olds will take separate field trips that also have the fee built into the weekly fee. Teens are able to sign up for weekly field trips as well as other individual opportunities.

In order to keep your 5-12 year old child’s spot in our program through the summer, they must participate at least 3 days per week and be to the Club each day by no later than 10 a.m. Your child can be absent for up to one week this summer without having to pay the weekly fee.

Summer registration is open at the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh’s Radford Center at 501 E Parkway Avenue during regular Club hours or at our three After School Care sites: Jacob Shapiro, Jefferson and Lakeside from 2:45 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Monday – Friday.

If you have any questions about 5-12 year old summer registration, please contact Child Care Director Lindsay Clark at or 920-233-1414, ext. 114.

Teens can come to the CLUB Teen Center Monday-Friday from 11:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. in the summer. During that time, they can participate in a wide variety of activities, tournaments and programs, video games, computers, sports, music, cooking classes, daily challenges and games.

Each week, the CLUB Teen Center will feature a different theme. Programs and the Friday field trip will correspond with the theme. Weekly theme and field trip info will be available on our website starting May 1st and will also be posted in the Teen Center.
