2021 Summer Program

2021 Summer Program Enrollment

Maury County Public Schools is offering students in grades K-7th a four-week summer learning opportunity from June 7th through July 2nd. The S.T.A.R. Summer Camps are designed to help address standards gaps and any negative impacts that COVID-19 has had on learning. 
This summer, Boys & Girls Clubs will offer “after school” programs until 6pm for all S.T.A.R. camp sites and 1-6pm on Fridays to assist working families and help support the district’s academic efforts. Our summer program will include tutoring, hands-on learning and STEM activities, and fun enrichment and social recreation programs. Before program care from 7am to 8am may also be offered at some locations, depending upon demand.
We also plan to offer our normal, all-day summer programs at select locations for students not participating in the district’s camps! 

Summer 2021 Locations

We will be offering all day services at the following locations starting June 1st:

Culleoka Unit School (K-12th) 6am – 6pm

Mt. Pleasant Elementary School (K-8th) 6am – 6pm

Battle Creek Elementary (K-8th) 6am – 6pm

Wayne Street Unit (K-5th) 6am – 6pm

Columbia Teen Center (6-12th) 7am – 6pm

Pulaski Club (K-12th) 7am – 5:30pm


Additionally, we will be providing two transportation routes for STAR Camp participants after school– one transporting Spring Hill area youth to Battle Creek Elementary, and one transporting Columbia area youth to Wayne Street and the Columbia Teen Center.  Pick up locations are as follows:

Wayne Street and Teen Center STAR Camp after school busing:

Whitthorne Middle—5th graders -> Wayne Street, 6th-8th -> Teen Center

E.A. Cox Middle—5th graders -> Wayne Street, 6th-8th -> Teen Center

Randolph Howell Elementary -> Wayne Street

Brown Elementary -> Wayne Street

Battle Creek Elementary STAR Camp after school busing:

Spring Hill Middle -> Battle Creek Elementary

Spring Hill Elementary -> Battle Creek Elementary

Marvin Wright Elementary -> Battle Creek Elementary

Battle Creek Middle -> Battle Creek Elementary

These are pick up only spots, for youth attending the STAR Camp, and there will be no return drop offs at the end of the program.


If a member takes advantage of the transportation route, parent pick up will happen at the Club’s program site (Wayne Street, Teen Center, or Battle Creek Elementary).



Although we normally operate all day in one of these schools each summer, we were just notified by MCPS that, due to the STAR camp program, neither school has room for BGC until July 5th.  We are actively pursuing all possible options for families from these schools that need all day care, including leasing space in a Columbia area church, and we are also awaiting an answer from MCPS leadership if any other school in the Columbia area can house us.

We will most likely be able to offer an all day option beginning no later than Tuesday, June 8th, at either Westminster Presbyterian Church, First Family Church in Columbia, or Highland Park Elementary. We hope to have a final determination by no later than Friday, May 28th.

At a minimum, while MCPS is running STAR Camps, we WILL be providing before (starting at 6am) and after school support (dismissal till 6 pm) to Baker and Woodard STAR Camp participants.  Before care will take place at each school. After School will either take place at the schools or be bused to an all day Columbia location if secured, as noted above.

Once the STAR Camps conclude, all day programing will resume at Woodard Elementary starting July 5th, 6am to 6pm, and no services will be provided at Baker Elementary. Baker Students are welcome to attend Woodard Elementary.
