2018 May Edition

Summertime is around the corner and the kids are preparing for a fun-filled summer at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Memphis. One of the most exceptional programs that we are proud of is Camp Phoenix!


Camp Phoenix is a beautiful Residential Camp that lies on 175 acres of magnificent land on the shores of Sardis Lake in Como, Mississippi. Each year, approximately 350 kids have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors participating in numerous activities such as Canoeing, Hiking, Fishing, Astronomy, and much more. Our amazing Camp Director, David Keigan, who has dedicated his time to BGCM youth for nearly 10 years, leads Camp Phoenix.


There are many ways to help continue this tradition and ensure years of success for Camp Phoenix through the Planned Giving Program. For more information, please feel free to contact me at 901-203-1193 or nekic [at] bgcm [dot] org.
