The Club in Oxnard just for teens

OXNARD, Calif. -

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme is taking a new approach.

Rather than being open to all ages, the Harriet H. Samuelson Branch at 126 E. 7th St. in Oxnard is now exclusively for teens.  It is being called The Club.

The Boys and Girls Club on 5th Street will welcome children 12 and under.

A grand opening and ribbon-cutting took place Thursday night.

But all week teens can enjoy a boxing area, a climbing wall, a snack bar and an art and music room.

Chief Professional Officer Tim Blaylock said, “The Club is really about teens voicing their perspective, interests and connecting face-to-face with each other in a safe, substance-free and pressure-free environment.”

Teens can register to join the center for $20 a year.  For more information or to register, contact Erin Antrim at 483-1118 x305 or eamtrim@bgcop.org.
