To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens
The Boys & Girls Club of Camden County (BGCCC) has been serving the youth of Camden, NJ for nearly ten years, providing the city's children with a safe haven, positive mentors, and the opportunity for success. BGCCC operates with the mission to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Club fulfills this mission by offering programs in five essential areas including Character and Leadership Development, Education and Career Development, Health and Life Skills, The Arts, and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.
Today, BGCCC serves nearly 4,000 youth, ages 6-18, at two state-of-the art sites, making our organization one of the largest among youth services in Camden. Since the majority of our members spend their lives growing up in poverty, corporate and community support is essential in helping us reach our goal to serve the children in Camden County.
