A look back at 2022!

Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area (BGCCA) had an incredible year in 2022 filled with events, programs and the smiles of kids & teens. We served thousands of kids each day across our Pre-K, After School, Summer Camp, & Teen Programs. All BGCCA kids received a nutritious meal, academic support and access to positive mentorship.

2022 was an incredible year of support! BGCCA volunteers worked shifts at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and the MVP Arena, with all proceeds benefitting the Club. Volunteer groups from entities like Allstate, KPMG, Sage Engaged, and many others worked on many club projects throughout the year. The individual and business support from across the community with donations, events, and volunteers was also fantastic! Thank you to everyone who contributed to providing great futures for our Capital Area youth!

Here we take a look at 12 highlights from 2022 that happened in Albany and Rensselaer counties. Links to more photos & video are included.
