ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Summer programs to keep kids out of trouble are underway at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany.

Programs will offer a variety of academic enrichment programs focused around Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math.

Officials say children will enjoy fun and positive hands-on learning experiences.

"We are giving them an opportunity to really learn something, stimulate their minds, stretch the boundaries of a traditional summer program and keep them positively engaged. We also want to make sure that we are preventing Summer learning loss more than anything," said Director Jacqueline Robinson.

Summer applications are still being accepted at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany.
