Galaxy Mason Jars

Love Arts & crafts? Check out what our members created! Galaxy Mason Jars. This cool arts & craft project was taught by Jennifer, one of our Teen Center staff. Members created this cool project using jars, paint, cotton balls, duck tap, water, glitter and of course mason jars. Members mixed in water and different paints to create a cool galaxy look.

K40 Member Panel

K40 has been a long time supporter of the BGCDT. They are a company that makes radar detectors. Lynette Tomlinson, who is in charge of their social media and marketing, asked some of our members to come and speak to them about how club has impacted their lives and what they do through a discussion panel.

New Digital Art Program

The Image Maker program is back and includes Digital Art and this year the Teen Center will be participating in the BGCA Image Makers program! This particular program has been around for 50 years. The goal is to teach the teens what photography is about and just how much goes into creating that perfect photo. It also enhances their artistic skills and goes beyond taking a simple selfie. The Image Maker side will focus on portraits, nature, and environmental photography.

Summer is here!

It's that time of year again! Yup it's summer time and the BGCDT kicked it off with their traditional summer activities of bowling and swimming! Every other week this summer our members will bowl at Liberty Lanes as they have for many years. It is something that they have always loved and will continue this year. They will also swim every other week at Dolphins Cove, another tradition that club has done as a whole. We look forward to all our fun activities.Stay tuned to see what comes next this summer!

Crochet Program with Debbe

Meadowdale and Parkview club members have had the opportunity to be involved in the Crochet Program run by Debbe Lowe. Club members that participated learned new creative skills to show off their talents and create amazing things with Crocheting. Members created beanie hats, headbands as well as wash cloths. Some of the items created were donated to the newborns at Sherman Hospital. Great job to all who participated in the Crochet program!
