Summer camp allows kids to grow and have fun between months of school, unlike fall camps, where children are pulled out of class to rake leaves. Grant little ones a seasonal escape with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get one week of summer day camp at Camp ClubZona, hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley (up to a $90 value). Today's deal is valid at locations in Apache Junction, Chandler, Gilbert, Guadalupe, Mesa, North Tempe, Queen Creek, and Tempe.
Camp ClubZona entertains youngsters' vivid imaginations with fun activities in a caring environment. Ideal for ages 5 to 13, the day camp keeps children engaged in wholesome activities rather than leaving them inside worrying over their tax returns. Most locations are open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. (though North Tempe opens at 7:30 a.m.), allowing 11 hours for campers to finger-paint and frolic through arts and crafts, physical activities, computer labs, and occasional field trips. Most locations also include lunch and snack in the weekly fees (lunch not included at Apache Junction) to ensure attendees are fully fueled for chasing down elusive flags.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley is a community-based organization dedicated to providing opportunities for today’s youth to build character, self-esteem, and values. Through after school care and community activities, the Clubs foster a nurturing environment where children and young teens can grow and mature, developing personal skills and empowering high-fiving techniques in a safe environment.
Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley
A safe space. That's what Boys & Girls Clubs of the East Valley give to more than 36,000 kids each year. But along with keeping kids out of harm's way after school lets out, the Boys & Girls Clubs enrich children's lives though their programs. Kids get creative in arts classes, learn social interaction and fitness skills in sports programs, and prepare for the future with technology courses that ensure they won't buy stock in companies that only produce floppy discs.
The Boys & Girls Clubs impact kids beyond afterschool care. In addition to the East Valley clubs having the first Arizona club to serve a Native American community, the clubs' Ladmo branch has Mona Dixon, who was named National Youth of the Year for the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 2010.
Her path of success, encouraged by the Boys & Girls Clubs, led her from a girl homeless and worried about her family's survival to a young woman with a full ride to college and named one of the Top 28 Most Influential Black Women in America by Essence magazine.
