– Our Mission –
The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito is an organization dedicated to providing POSITIVE activities to develop the education, health, self-esteem and character of youth.
Why Boys & Girls Clubs?
The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito, founded in 1966, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community asset and neighborhood resource that serves not only youth and teens, but adults and families. Today, the organization serves more than 6,775+ San Dieguito members in our programs and impacts 13,000+ youth throughout San Diego through our summer camps, specialty programs and services.
Our seven clubhouses are located in Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, Solana Beach and Eden Gardens. Our various branches offer exceptional programs for youth to include:
- Personal development through Core Program Areas
- Clean facilities with dedicated, caring staff members who provide a safe environment for youth
- Quality after-school programs and activities at affordable prices
- Diverse summer camps to fit the needs of all campers
- Innovative specialty programs in academics, music and arts, athletics, volunteering, and healthy living
For over the past 50 years, BGC San Dieguito has been at the forefront of identifying and acting on the needs of the community it serves.
Our affiliation with Boys & Girls Clubs of America gives us access to many proven programs. Our qualified staff is adept at developing programs that appeal to youth in each unique club. No child is excluded from attending the Club since financial assistance is available. Inclusion is a philosophy that facilitates a sense of belonging among our members regardless of ability. The philosophy teaches our members that diversity is a part of life that should not only be accepted but valued.
