“We are excited to be sponsored by Lewis Clark Credit Union! LCCU is a great supporter of our valley youth!”
– Boys and Girls Club of Lewis Clark Valley
Once again we were honored and excited to be a part of the “Summer Challengers Program” with is a Boys and Girls Clubs program. The Summer Challengers Program is a safe, structured place for children going into Kindergarten – 6th Grade to attend during the summer and interact with positive adult role models. Qualified staff provide structured activities in several areas of learning and fun. Scholarships are available so that the program is affordable for everyone. Programs include indoor-outdoor athletic activities, games room tournaments, arts & crafts projects, computer fun, and educational activities.
This is the second year that LCCU has been the sponsor of the program. Our sponsorship allows kids to attend activities despite money constraints. Part of our sponsorship give us the opportunity to come in and interact one-on-one with the kids, and as a group as well. We talk about how to be smart with money and share basic financial education (at a level which can be understood by kids), play games, bring in donuts and juice for the kids, and give out prizes. There is usually anywhere from 100-150 kids in attendance each day, and it is definitely one of the best highlights of our summer!
