The youth are transported back to the Boys and Girls Club where they will receive a healthy snack prepared by the club staff. While at the club the children are able to complete their homework, make crafts in the craft room, play in the gymnasium, play cards/board games, watch a movie in our theatre or go to our local park as part of our structured programming offered until 6 pm Monday to Friday. Participants also get access to the Credit Union Place for swimming, bowling, use of the walking track and ice pad.
Each month we have a Heather Moyse Good Sport of the Month award.

Fair-Play on the Fairway
Our club offers a one of a kind program that educates participants on golf etiquette, rules, regulations, techniques and skill building. Taught by Golf Pro Dallas Desjardins and under the guidance of our marvelous staff, club members learn everything they need to know to hit the greens. Including how to hold a golf club, proper swing, follow through, chipping, putting, driving, overall technique, and all course rules and regulations. Not only do they learn the sport, but are all taught fair play values, respect, team set goal achievements, enhanced self esteem and self worth all in a comfortable confine of their own Club gymnasium. They learn all of the above utilizing indoor child/youth friendly golf equipment developed to master the sport during fun and challenging activities created by course Pro and golf staff. Once they are comfortable with these skills and understand the course rules, regulations, etiquette and all safety procedures, they will be taken on a wonderful field trip to the Summerside Golf Course to put their practical and theory learned to the test. So many members have never played golf, so this programs breaks existing barriers in search for the next Mike Weir.
