Monroe Boys & Girls Club Summer Camps
The Boys & Girls Club Monroe offers summer day camps for children from kindergarten through high school. The camp runs in weeklong sessions with a different theme each week.

The cost of camp varies depending on your child’s age, but the fee does include all snacks, supplies and field trips.

Sky River Day Camp is held at Fox Farm and is a weeklong camp where girls will play games, sing songs, build a campfire, learn about cooking and animals, and make friends. This camp teaches girls confidence, courage and character through hands-on activities, games and spending time with friends. Sky River Day Camp is for girls entering first grade and up.
