The Boys and Girls Club of Morehead City NC is a program developed and funded by the Sunshine Lady Club, the Big Rock Tournament, and countless other people and companies in the Carteret County community which seeks to offer stability to vulnerable children and kids who may be at home during times of the day without a parent due to one or both parents having to work during after school hours.

Currently, the Boys and Girls Club of the Coastal Plain offers an extensive summer camp and after school programs for school age children in Morehead City, and offers transportation from 5 different school to their facility.
The yearly cost for membership is $25, but their summer camp costs around $250 (varies depending upon funding) and runs from 7:30 am till 6 pm Monday through Friday during summer months. Outside of the summer camp, the club is operational from 3 pm to 6 pm Monday through Friday for the after school program.
This club does offer snacks and dinner at their facility.
What to expect at this club: During the after school program, children arrive from school and staff helps them with homework. The entire day is centered around inclusion and diversity. After homework is completed, children engage in both arts and crafts, exercise and play. There is a commitment to teaching children to be members of a community and respecting others.
Summer Camp: The Boys and Girls summer camp program starts one week after the school year, and ends one week before classes start. Children attending can expect to go out in to the public at places like the Splashpad in Atlantic Beach and The Sports Center in Morehead City for swimming. All aspects of inclusion, diversity, and community are incorporated in to this camp.
For families in the community who are unable to pay $250 for this program there are sponsorship programs offered or parents can choose to pay $25 a week.
The Sunshine Lady Club is a part of the National Sunshine Lady Foundation run by Doris Buffett and her non-profit provided a matching grant of $500,000 to help build the 17,000 square foot facility in April of 2005.
