BCYF Fun Stops offer free, daily drop-in activities at five locations.

Boston Centers for Youth & Families (BCYF) is pleased to bring back the annual “BCYF Fun Stops” offering free, daily, drop-in activities at five locations in Boston through August 18.

Children ages 8-14 are welcome to stop in and enjoy a variety of structured activities including board games, sports, arts and crafts and more from 12 noon to 5 p.m.* each weekday. No pre-registration is required, however, parents must fill out a brief waiver form that contains the necessary emergency contact information as well as allows youth to swim during scheduled times at the Fun Stop pool locations. Each Fun Stop is open on a first come, first serve basis, and is limited to 50 youth per day. Many of the Fun Stops are able to provide lunch through the Summer Food Service Program, but please confirm with the site.  Fun Stops begin on July 10 and will continue through Friday, August 18.
