Boys Town for many years has provided our youth with opportunities to learn and grow over the summer months. In the past, the kids were involved in a program that was lovingly referred to as “Summer Work.” The boys and girls learned job-related skills by lending a hand in the Horticulture, Garden, and Farm Departments, helping to beautify the campus by planting flowers and completing landscaping projects. They also maintained a large garden, harvesting and selling vegetables at a Farmer’s Market, and cared for small farm animals that also called Boys Town their home.

This year, however, brings some exciting changes to the summer routine, starting with a new title: the Summer Enrichment Program.

In the Summer Enrichment Program, we have expanded the areas youth will participate in so they have even more opportunities to develop and build their social skills, life skills, and job-related skills. Youth will rotate weekly through 10 different session areas, enjoying fun and educational activities that will help them grow into well-rounded individuals.

We are all looking forward to a great summer for all of our Boys Town youth!
