Health & Life Skills

Supper Club: The Boys & Girls Club of Lancaster serves a hot, nutritious meal each weeknight for our Club members. Over eighty-six percent of our members qualify for free or reduced lunch at school; Supper Club ensures that they are consistently provided with dinner. We serve an average of 30,000 meals per year, and also provide breakfast and lunch at our summer camp site, Camp Hogan.

SMART Girls: It is a health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program for girls ages 10-15. The program is designed to encourage healthy attitudes and lifestyles that will enable early adolescent girls to develop to their full potential.


Passport to Manhood: Passport to Manhood promotes and teaches responsibility in Club boys ages 11-14. Passport to Manhood consists of 14 sessions, each of which concentrates on a specific aspect of manhood through highly interactive activities. Each Club participant receives his own “passport” to underscore the notion that he is on a personal journey of maturation and growth. Passport to Manhood represents a targeted effort to engage young boys in discussion activities that reinforce positive behavior. Passport to Manhood is an excellent complement to SMART Girls.
