Physical Activity, Health & Safety
Physical and Emotional Health
Boys & Girls Clubs have always known the importance of physical recreation for New Bedford area boys and girls. With child obesity increasing at an alarming rate, not only is it critical to life-long health, studies also show that having access to recreational and social programs outside of school, positively impacts children’s peer relationships, emotional adjustment, conflict resolutions skills and academic performance. The Club encourages daily physical activity through a variety of programs.
