BGCLB members spent all week designing their cars

Throughout the week, BGCLB youth showed their creativity by designing and making cars out of cardboard and other materials. Many cars featured detailed additions including steering wheels, windshield wipers and even drivers’ licenses.

Theaters were showing four different movies

After the “cardboard cars” were constructed, youth had the option of four different “drive-in” movie theaters, each with its own movie option.

This special project was a week-long event that captured the ingenuity of the Club’s youth, while providing a fun and memorable experience for the Club community.
