The Boys & Girls Club of Taunton is a safe and positive place where our young people can learn, grow, and have fun.
Founded in 1902, the Boys & Girls Club of Taunton is one of the oldest Boys & Girls Clubs in the country. For more than a century the Boys & Girls Club of Taunton has been an unparalleled resource for youth in our community, with programs evolving to meet the challenges posed by an ever-changing world whist remaining true to our mission: to give youth in the Greater Taunton Region – no matter what neighborhood they're from or school they attend – a sense of hope, belonging and purpose, as well as the skills they need to overcome life's challenges and give back to their community.
Annually, our Club serves more than 500 youth ages 6-18 through a combination of after-school, weekend, and summer programs aimed at helping young people achieve great futures. Our "Clubhouse" is located at 31 Court Street in downtown Taunton. We are open every day after school and during most school vacations. Club Members may drop in at any time to engage in supervised activities led by our caring staff.
In addition to serving as a daily drop-in facility for young people, the Boys & Girls Club of Taunton offers a licensed Child Care program, several youth and adult Sports Leagues, the Tiger Sharks Swim Team and Swim Lessons. Each summer, the Boys & Girls Club of Taunton also operates Camp Riverside - a fantastic day camp facility located on 45 acres at 388 Harvey Street in Taunton.
