FALLBROOK – While many lucky out-of-school youth will look forward this summer to exciting camps or trips to Sea World, many more will find themselves with few structured activities, parents who are working all day – and too much time to get into trouble. The Boys & Girls Clubs of North County are offering young people a safe, positive place to spend the summer months while also fighting the effects of "Summer Brain Drain."

Along with the summer programs that begin in June, the club is excited to announce its newest program. The LISA (Learning, It’s Summer’s Adventure) program will provide free books to club members. Kids will be given the opportunity to keep their free books or trade them in for additional books all throughout the summer.

According to the Center for Summer Learning at Johns Hopkins University, "Summer Brain Drain" is a seasonal malady that causes millions of young people to lose months of accumulated knowledge.

"We understand how crucial this time can be for all our club members," said Allison Barclay, CPO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County. "Each year we try to develop new ways to give club members the tools they need to become successful, well-rounded citizens. By providing free books to our club members, we hope to help them retain or gain ground on their reading ability."

For more information on the LISA Program or the other summer programs offered by the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, or to donate to the LISA Program, call (760) 728-5871. Learn more at www.bgcnorthcounty.org.
