The Boys & Girls Club of Manitowoc County, located at 3651 Dewey St., opens its doors daily after school and during summer break as a place for youth ages 6-12 to be encouraged by caring adults. The Club provides meals and activities focused on academics, staying active, and exploring the arts. Being a primarily community-funded organization, financial barriers do not prohibit any youth from belonging to the Club.
