Call it engaging. Call it fun.

The club is currently accepting registration for the summer programs.Just don’t call the Boys & Girls Club Summer Camp in Cottonwood “day care.”

“We’re a youth development organization,” Boys & Girls Clubs of Northern Arizona Executive Director Connie Dedrick said.

The club, located in Old Town, will offer a full range of activities including arts and crafts, music, computer and technology programs, and sports and recreation for school-age children at its Summer Camp from Monday, June 4, to Friday, July 27, all from staff members with a background in youth development.

The camp, open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. will be priced at $55 per week or $15 a day, and it will offer free lunches and snacks.
