Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade (BGCMD) is thrilled to accept new members for its 2020 in-person Summer Camp, “Virtual Club” Summer Camp, and in-person Sports Conditioning Camp. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing efforts/CDC guidelines, BGCMD is offering a smaller, limited in-person Summer Camp and Sports Conditioning Camp.

“We are excited to offer our summer programs while taking every precaution to ensure the safety and protection of all youth in our programs ― the No. 1 priority of Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade,” said Alex Rodriguez-Roig, president of BGCMD. “These positive programs are very important to keeping our youth members engaged during the summer months.”

In-Person Summer Camp Program
Just like the after-school program during the school year, the Summer Camp program enables children to learn values such as friendship, honesty and teamwork by providing a safe and secure environment where they can develop into productive and independent young adults.

It is offered at the Hank Kline, Northwest, Kendall and South Beach Clubs, and staffed by qualified full-time and summer staff. Children participate in fun indoor activities such as arts and crafts, computer room, game room, table games, movie room, basketball and much more. Outdoor activities include organized group games. Members are placed in groups of nine members per one adult staff.

The in-person Summer Camp program is open to all boys and girls ages 5–17 (must be entering kindergarten in the fall; cannot turn 17 before Sept. 1, 2018), and runs Monday–Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; however, counselors are available to supervise children from 8:15 a.m.–6 p.m.

A free nutritious lunch and afternoon snack is provided daily at no additional cost, or children may bring their own lunch. At each Club, awards will be given to recognize the boys and girls who have made a positive contribution to the Summer Camp program.

To register, parents must come in person to the specific Club where their child(ren) will be attending the Summer Camp program. Mailed or faxed registration cards will not be accepted. Children will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis until the program is filled.

The price for the in-person Summer Camp program starts at $200 for the entire summer and is available at the following Clubs:
· Hank Kline Club, 2805 SW 32 Avenue Miami, FL 33133
· Kendall Club, 9475 North Kendall Dr. Miami, FL 33176
· South Beach Club, 1200 Michigan Avenue Miami, FL 33139
· Northwest Club, 10915 NW 14 Avenue Miami, FL 33167

“Virtual Club” Summer Camp
BGCMD youth members can participate in fun activities virtually including story time, STEM, arts and crafts, physical fitness, yoga, homework assistance, mentoring, social-emotional learning, “virtual get-togethers” and much more. All activities are conducted via Zoom and schedules vary by Club and age group. Virtual activities are offered daily from 9 a.m.–5 p.m. in 40-minute sessions.

To date, the “Virtual Club” Summer Camp has served 320 youth through more than 5,350 unique virtual visits. BGCMD has provided 1,304 hours in virtual learning sessions.

To register for the “Virtual Club” as a new youth club member, visit bgcmia.org/education-after-school/boys-girls-clubs-of-miami-dade-virtual-club/. The full schedule and registration information is available by contacting Diana Perez at dperez@bgcmia.org.

In-Person Sports Conditioning Summer Camp
Sport programs are available during the afternoon to the early hours of the night. This is the time of day when children, especially teens, are more likely to engage in harmful activities. They are offered Monday through Friday. Coaches are volunteers who help the children learn proper techniques for the sport.

The Sports Conditioning Summer Camp starts on June 22, and is available at the Kendall Club only. The cost is $60. It includes four weeks of conditioning with coaches with experience in sports conditioning.

Workout groups will include no more than nine children. Each day, all participants will have their temperature taken prior to participating. Hand washing stations will be provided. Participants must bring their own water bottle and face covering. Additional water stations will be provided.

Sessions for children aged 5–10 will be Mondays and Wednesdays from 6–8 p.m. Sessions for children aged 11–14 will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6–8 p.m. Fridays are reserved for rainout make-ups.

To register, fill out the registration form, sign the waiver and make a payment at bgcmia.org/sports-programs-leagues/.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will reopen to the public on June 15, just in time to celebrate National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. The attraction will present “The Island Imprint: The Art and History of the Caribbean Community in Broward County,” a historical fine art exhibition produced by cultural nonprofit Island SPACE (islandspacefl.org) through June 29 in The New River Inn (231 SW Second Avenue).

This second staging in a multiyear initiative celebrating Broward County’s Caribbean heritage displays the works of three artist-contributors. Photo artist and curator David I. Muir (Jamaica) shares a selection of photos from the “Caribbean-American” collection, printed on canvas and featuring Caribbean scenes around Broward County. Two-time photography participant Sonya Sanchez-Arias (Trinidad) shares pieces from her “Fragments” collection, in which images she has captured from the Caribbean region are digitally manipulated, printed on metal, and mounted on natural, reclaimed materials. Mixed-media artist Krystle Sabdul (Jamaica) has included a variety of expressive, oversized portraits. The historical aspect of the exhibition, curated by Calibe Thompson (Jamaica), traces the Caribbean community’s roots in Broward through news clippings, archival photos and information displaying the influence of diverse island people on the vibrant fabric of Greater Fort Lauderdale.

Support for the project has been provided, in part, by the Broward County Cultural Division and the following Funds at the Community Foundation of Broward: Helen and Frank Stoykov Charitable Endowment Fund, David and Francie Horvitz Family Fund, Ann Adams Fund, Mary and Alex Mackenzie Community Impact Fund, Blockbuster Entertainment Unrestricted Fund, Robert E. Dooley Unrestricted Fund for Broward, Harold D. Franks Fund and Jan Moran Unrestricted Fund.

History Fort Lauderdale is proud to showcase a variety of annual multicultural exhibits highlighting African American, Caribbean and Latin artists sharing their views of history. Permanent exhibits include “The Bryans of Fort Lauderdale” which allows guests to experience the story of the City of Fort Lauderdale as told through the pioneer family that shaped its development from an agricultural outpost in 1896 to a bustling city in the 1920s to its current status as a leading Metropolis, “Juliette Lange: A Portrait of a Mezzo Soprano,” a fashion and lifestyle glimpse of the socially prominent Fort Lauderdale resident with a lauded career as a star vocalist of musical comedy, plus “Archaeology of the New River” and a multitude of narratives and photos sharing the history of other founding families of Fort Lauderdale.

Admission to “The Island Imprint: The Art and History of the Caribbean Community in Broward County” is free with History Fort Lauderdale general museum admission – $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID).

Our 20-minute bilingual Picnic de Libros en Casa will take place twice a month, will feature story time, mime and circus performances, children’s theatre, music, percussion and arts and crafts demos, and will be live-streamed on FB Live.

April 25, May 16 and 30, June 13 and 27, 11am, Live on Facebook: @KoubekCenterMDC

RSVP / Register
Cost: $400 per person

Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will host its 11th annual Golf Invitational to benefit A Prom to Remember on Monday, March 23, from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., at Fort Lauderdale Country Club, the oldest private country club in Broward County. A Prom to Remember is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the ultimate prom experience for teens who have been affected by cancer, at no-cost to their families.

Funds from this tournament will help to create this year’s prom on May 8 at the Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale. Over 200 teens will experience an unforgettable night with Miami Dolphin players, Miami Heat and Miami Hurricane cheerleaders/dancers along with local celebrities, DJs and more.

The tournament format consists of registration and lunch at 11 a.m. with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start for a four-person scramble. A silent auction with luxury items awards ceremony and dinner will be held at 6 p.m. This will be the first charitable tournament to be held on Fort Lauderdale Country Club’s newly renovated North Course.

The North Course project, overseen by Kipp Schulties, principal architect of Kipp Schulties Golf Design (KSGD), underwent an extensive renovation including replacement of the greens and the provision of tees between 4,800 yards and 7,100 yards, making the course more enjoyable for both men and women of all abilities. The upgrades created an elevated level of excitement for members adding to the facility’s 18-Hole, Par 72 South Course which was built in 1926, remodeled twice and is often home to many corporate and non-profit events, annually.

In the Broward County area, which has numerous golf courses, Fort Lauderdale Country Club is a select private club that offers 36-holes of manicured championship golf in a forested park-like setting. Visually, the Club is truly a unique oasis as fairways are lined with stately native trees and colorful beds of flowers, as opposed to houses.

The Blue Martini Golf Invitational at Fort Lauderdale Country Club is also sponsored by Cheney Brothers, Daoud’s Fine Jewelry, WSVN and Ultimate Software.

The golf fee to participate in the 11th Annual Blue Martini is $400 per person or $1,600 for a Corporate Sponsorship foursome which includes a tee or a green sign and company recognition. Fees includes lunch, greens fees and golf cart, a golfer’s gift bag, day-of-event contests, on-course beverages and the awards dinner and ceremony. Golf club rentals are available for an additional fee. Registration is required by visiting http://bit.ly/APTRGolfTourney2020 or by calling 877-385-7766.

Miami Book Fair presents: Speak Up.

Each Weekly workshop will focus on one technique or exercise. The teaching artists will offer feedback and support each week. Teens are encouraged to come every week, but each week will function as standalone workshop, so coming to only one, multiple, or all, is perfectly OK.

The focus of these workshops is to cultivate the creative writing process, from drafting to performance to publishing. Goals are to empower teens, equip them for success, and build a lasting community of brilliant young writers in South Florida. Sign up today for one or all of the Speak Up after-school workshops. Walk-ins are welcome, but spots are limited, so we recommend that you sign up early!

The program is open to all teens (ages 13-19) in South Florida, requires no prior experience, and is free of charge as it is free of homework. All students with an interest in creative writing should sign up.

Goals are to empower teens, equip them for success, and build a lasting community of brilliant young writers in South Florida. Sign up today for one or all of the Speak Up after-school workshops. Walk-ins are welcome, but spots are limited, so we recommend that you sign up early!

The program is open to all teens (ages 13-19) in South Florida, requires no prior experience, and is free of charge as it is free of homework. All students with an interest in creative writing should sign up.

– Health Foundation of South Florida
– Live Healthy Little Havana
– Miami-Dade County District 5 Commissioner Eileen Higgins
– City of Miami District 3 Commissioner Joe Carollo
– Miami Parking Authority

About Transform 5th Street:
The focus of this project is to transform SW 5th Street between SW 3rd Ave and 4th Ave in Little Havana into a fully accessible public space for all community members. The street currently separates Jose Marti Park into two isolated sections but can quickly become a space where community members can gather, community events will occur, and people feel safer and more attracted to the park overall.

Working with Little Havana residents, we are bringing a series of activities and events — all inspired by local community members — to SW 5th Street. The goal is to close the street for pedestrian and community use, as an extension of the Jose Marti Park area.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and nothing sets the Holiday Season into full swing more than the lighting of Downtown Miami’s Christmas Tree. The iconic 50-foot tree that sits in the middle of Bayfront Park will serve as the center and focal point of the Bayskate roller-skating rink at Bayfront Holiday Village. On Saturday November 30, it will receive a celebrity filled countdown and illumination worthy of a million twinkling lights. South Florida celebrities and dignitaries will be on-hand to light the tree and set the LED animation into musical motion, including Mayor Francis Suarez of the City of Miami and Commissioner Joe Carollo, Chairman of the Bayfront Park Trust. The tree will trip the light fantastic to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy winner, A.T. Molina, who is the original producer/creator of the Burrito Sabanero mix. Enrique Santos from Tu949 will join Sasha Jones, Consumer Investigative Reporter for NBC 6 and Alejandra Molina, News Anchor at Telemundo 51, to host the event, along with Santa Claus, who is scheduled to arrive in Miami fashion via a yacht. Together, they will make sure that this tree will continue to serve as Santa’s guiding light to Miami.

“This is a special tree, because after the initial lighting ceremony, we will have mini lighting ceremonies every night all the way through Christmas. Not just every night, but every hour,” says Tony Albelo, SWARM CEO and event organizer. Each night starting at 6PM, the park will become quiet, the music will rev up, and the tree will display one of the most beautifully animated light shows ever sequenced. Those who miss the initial tree-lighting ceremony on November 30, will have an opportunity to experience it again and again while enjoying hot cocoa and churros or sipping seasonal cocktails such as the Peppermint Mojito, Mistletoe Mule, White Christmas Margarita or Winter Bourbon Smash at the North Pole Beach Club.

The lighting of the 50-ft animated tree at Bayfront Holiday Village will mark the opening of this picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue filled with larger-than-life holiday displays, waterfront roller-skating, local vendors, nightly music and top food and drink offerings. Whether you’re chilling at the North Pole Beach Club, partaking in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt, or taking a selfie with Santa, there’s something for everyone!

Bayfront Holiday Village — A Bustling Wonderland Filled with Brilliant Lights, Shopping, Food and Entertainment Awaits in Downtown Miami

Bayfront Holiday Village Brings Daily Christmas Tree Lights Shows, Waterfront Roller-Skating, Local Vendors, Nightly Music and Top Food and Drink Offerings

Downtown Miami’s iconic Bayfront Park will transform into the magical Bayfront Holiday Village offering free, family-friendly programming all season long. Guests of all ages will enjoy daily 50 ft. Christmas tree LED light shows, waterfront roller-skating by Bayskate, over 50 local vendors, festive music and al fresco food and drinks.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, locals and tourists alike will come for the weather, but stay for great shop-ping, entertainment and Miami’s version of a tropical winter wonderland.

“We know that New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles have pop-up holiday villages. We wanted to create a village where people would gather their loved ones and join in on some holiday cheer. Of course, we have something that the rest of the nation envies – our weather,” said Tony Albelo, event creator and CEO at SWARM.

Organizers want people to envision a quaint, picture-perfect, holiday outdoor venue filled with twinkling lights against Miami’s downtown skyline and waterfront Biscayne Bay. The picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue will be filled with twinkling lights and larger-than-life displays worthy of capturing the moment and posting it on Insta-gram.

“The only thing missing out of this Hallmark-perfect scene will be the frigid snow, but that’s why we invite our neighbors from the north to come here to enjoy Bayfront Holiday Village, Miami-style,” added Albelo.

Every night, a fully decorated, 50-foot state-of-the-art, animated Christmas Tree will feature hourly LED light shows sequenced to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy-winning producer A.T. Molina.

New York has The Rink at Rockefeller Center, but Miami’s answer to cold-weather ice skating is Bay Skate, where adults and children can boogie to the beat of freestyle, tropical, contemporary pop and more. In the Northeast, peo-ple are ice skating and sipping hot cocoa wearing parkas. In Miami, we roller skate and sip mojitos in shorts. The Shops will offer a collection of 60 artisans in a jovial setting, each offering unique gift ideas to check off the “nice” list! Foodies will delight their senses at Bayfront Bites, where they’ll find seasonal beverages, sweet treats and food ga-lore!

The adventurous will participate in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt as they navigate Bayfront Park using guidebooks with clues to solve this year’s puzzle. Even fur babies will have a place of their own to hang out with free treats at the Santa Paws Dog Park, and every Sunday they’ll have Puppy Brunch!
