The Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis started their summer camps



Indianapolis, Indiana – Kids are no longer in school and are actively looking for things to do as summer break gets under way. This summer, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Indianapolis are opening their doors and providing children and teenagers with a secure place to be.

My opinion is that the Boys and Girls Club is a fantastic place to be since your child will enter and be around kind folks. Your child will have the chance to meet new people. They will be allowed to take part in activities. They will have a dinner, and they won’t be on the streets engaging in inappropriate behavior, according to Zach Sigmund, program director of the LeGore Boys and Girls Club.

Sigmund has a genuine enthusiasm for keeping youngsters secure, occupied, and out of danger. Since he was 13 years old, the LeGore club on the west side of Indianapolis has served as his home away from home. He is now a father and the program director. He is aware of the risks facing children and teenagers who have nothing to do this summer. He advises parents to send their children to the Boys and Girls Club since, in his opinion, both the cost to parents and the programs available there are unmatched.

“For the summer, the Boys & Girls Club offers $50. Our hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. You receive meals and field trips. You have many different opportunities. When you receive a $50 fee, the parents are much helped. The kids can come here and be protected while the parents go about their business and take care of their families, Sigmund said.

Children and teenagers between the ages of 5 and 18 are welcome in the Boys and Girls Club. From June 12 to July 21, which is the final week before Marion County’s school districts reopen for the new school year, summer camp is held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day. The entire summer will be covered by the $50 cost.

Sigmund, a LeGore Club program director for the past 18 years, says his top priorities are ensuring children’s safety and enabling them to have fun, in that order.

Making this a safe place is my first goal, I assure you. At least two staff members are always present in each room. When we aren’t in the room, we make sure the doors are locked. We take precautions to ensure the safety of our equipment, and we take great satisfaction in ensuring that our kids feel at ease coming here and being themselves while they are here. I think it’s really vital for people to be themselves,” Sigmund remarked.
