The Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club celebrated National Get Outdoors Day on Saturday, June 4 at the Milford Club, located at 101 Delaware Veterans Boulevard off Airport Road in Milford. Underscoring the connection to natural resources through play and creative activities, the Club hosted plenty of action in the form of obstacle courses, Touch-A-Truck, moon bounces, rides, games and crafts that engaged young minds and bodies in a healthy outdoor experience.
One of three large annual fundraising events for the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club, Kids Fest generates annual operating support from individuals and businesses that will enable Club staff to continue to provide quality program services to over 200 area youth on a daily basis. Programs at the Club are geared toward helping kids develop into productive, responsible and caring citizens. Funds raised by the specific event will be matched 100% by the Delaware Boys & Girls Club organization.
Celebrating seven years in their new location this past January, the Greater Milford Boys & Girls Club has increased its efforts to establish the Milford Club as a community center in the Greater Milford Area. In addition to serving school-aged children, the Club has recently expanded its facility and services to include a full size fitness center, adult basketball and pickleball leagues and water aerobic classes. The Richard Y. Johnson Aquatic Center is also home to the Milford High School Buccaneers Swim Team, the Club’s own Milford Marlins Swim Team and is the only Boys & Girls Club in Delaware to offer swimming scholarships through the Michael Phelps Foundation. These community services are made available to Greater Milford Area residents year-round through support from fundraising events including Kids Fest.
