The Bonsall Unified School District board approved a memorandum of understanding with the Boys & Girls Club of North County to provide intersession camps during school breaks and non-school days for BUSD students during the 2022-2023 school year.

The BUSD board voted 4-0 Wednesday, Nov. 16, with Michael Gaddis absent, to approve the MOU. The school district will pay the Boys & Girls Club $25 per enrolled student for each day.

“We’re excited to partner with the Boys & Girls Club,” BUSD superintendent Joseph Clevenger said.

The Boys & Girls Club of North County will provide camps with daily enrichment activities which will include academics, physical education, social and emotional development, and life skills. The activities will be held at Bonsall Elementary School and will be open to all BUSD students from transitional kindergarten through sixth grade. Students who register will receive a Boys & Girls Club membership which will provide access to their programs.

The daily enrichment activities will be from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Camps will be provided from Dec. 19 to Dec. 21, from Feb. 21 to Feb. 24, from April 3 through April 10, and from June 12 to June 30. The Boys & Girls Club will provide adequate staffing and materials and will also keep accurate attendance records and ensure that students are signed in and signed out each day.

In addition to the $25 per student per day payment, the school district responsibilities include providing adequate classrooms, restrooms and outdoor space for each site and providing lunch and snacks for the camp participants. The school district will also take steps to ensure that school staff, and Boys & Girls Club staff have a collaborative relationship with each other.
