Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Maryland (BGCSM), a youth development organization, opened in 1999 as Calvert County Boys & Girls Club. The organization serves youth in Southern Maryland providing after-school programs from 3 – 6 pm daily and summer camp from 7:30 am – 6 pm.
Our mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. So many children today, underprivileged and upper class, boys and girls of all races, turn to the streets, gangs and crime because they do not have a positive role model in which to turn. And some children just need a safe place to call their own. That’s why BGCSM is more important than ever.
Our professionally trained staff are there when youth need us most. We provide a positive and safe place for youth, 5 – 18, to learn and to grow during after-school hours and during school breaks providing them with programming designed to help create, foster, and nurture productive citizens equipped with the tools to be contributing members of the community in which they live.
