Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes is a registered non-profit charitable organization devoted to serving children and youth throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes. We offer programs and services that build skills and character, and foster self-esteem. Most importantly, the Club removes financial barriers by keeping program costs affordable and subsidizing all of its programs for families who cannot afford to pay.
