Sometimes I wonder what I'm a gonna do...

The following information was given to me by Ms. Jean Marie Mitchell for distribution to all interested parties. It involves information on Summer 2009 Programs offered by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hudson County. For those of you unaware, the Boys and Girls Club house the Edward A. Dalton Unit at 123 Jefferson St in Hoboken (phone: 201-963-6443) and the Robert T. Williams Jr. Unit at 1 Canal Street in Jersey City (201-333-4100).  -Dr. Petrosino

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County is proud to highlight our two spectacular summer programs for another year serving youth ages 5 to 18 in the Hudson County community. There are separate programs for teens and for younger children. However, both are designed to keep young people engaged and off the streets, to educate during the non-school months, and to provide fun recreational experiences. The programs offer a range of educational, social, and cultural activities to make a camper's experience exciting.
