Healthy living and active learning are evident in various summer activities like BGC Olympic Week, which offers your child the chance to participate in friendly competitions, earn awards, and learn the importance of good sportsmanship and teamwork.

Healthy Lifestyles

With our Nature theme, we promote healthy lifestyles by immersing our youth in mindfulness practices, environmental awareness, and the overall well-being of connecting with nature. This includes learning about plants and animals and exploring land and sea with nature crafts and outdoor activities. By fostering a deeper connection with the natural world, our campers can experience many benefits contributing to their overall health and wellness.

A Fun and Safe Summer Camp For Youth

We have zero tolerance for inappropriate behavior, including abuse and misconduct.

The steps we take include:

Safety Training of Staff and Volunteers

Our summer and school-year programs are led by experienced Club Directors and supported by paid staff and volunteers from the community, all of whom have completed required safety training, criminal background checks, and certifications. With further guidance from the Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) curriculum, local Sheriff’s offices, and safety partners, BGC Conejo is 100% safety compliant at all Clubs. These comprehensive policies and partnerships create a safe and supportive environment for our middle school and elementary youth members to learn and grow.

Policies to Protect Youth

We maintain appropriate staff-to-child ratios, comprehensive safety training, and annual assessments to ensure each youth Club member receives adequate supervision and attention while prohibiting private one-on-one contact. Our safety policies, priorities, and initiatives are designed to protect young people from threats and ensure they feel safe at the Club. These measures include mandating that our staff and volunteers report incidents or safety concerns to local authorities immediately and to BGCA within 24 hours, as well as prohibiting personal relationships between members and staff.

Health and Hygiene Practices

Creating healthy habits is a core principle of leading a healthy lifestyle. We emphasize regular handwashing, conduct regular sanitation of surfaces and facilities, and maintain a healthy Club environment by continuously monitoring health concerns and taking necessary precautions for our TK to 8th grade Club members.

Emergency Preparedness

Being prepared can significantly reduce risks when unforeseen circumstances arise. It helps our staff and volunteers be better equipped to handle emergencies and minimize confusion, panic, or chaos. By following emergency protocols and prioritizing the safety and well-being of our developing youth, we foster a culture of safety and awareness at the Clubs and nurture positive mental health benefits for staff and Club members.

Club Facility Safety

Our facilities are regularly inspected to meet safety standards to help parents, guardians, and children feel comfortable at the Clubs. Club entrances are secured to help prevent unauthorized access and monitor traffic in and out of the Clubs. Once inside the Club, you’ll find age-appropriate equipment to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries, accessible exits, and clear signage to help our staff and volunteers respond quickly and efficiently to emergencies.
