…Through these programs I became more outgoing and more creative. I wanted to share my ideas and thoughts, become a leader, to become a part of things and causes for the greater good of others and not just myself.

We provide paths for our youth to access various forms of art in an environment where they can feel heard, valued, loved, and understood. This exposure builds confidence, creativity, and focus, providing a new way for youth to express themselves, while building skills in the creative arts.

Recognizing that STEAM skills are increasingly necessary in the world, the BGCM hosts a STEAM summer camp where members learn robotics and electronics while integrating the art of science into day-to-day projects.

Members are encouraged to express their creative side through programs such as sewing, arts & crafts, photography, painting, and Image Makers, an annual photography contest providing local, regional and national recognition. Club members’ photographs selected at the contest’s national level are exhibited at the BGCA’s National Conference and other events.
