Spend summer at the club Summer camps at the Boys & Girls Club start June 27, with activities for kids from science experiments to scavenger hunts. The club's Summer Bridge Program is another option, which allows kids to brush up on reading, writing and math skills during the months when they are on break and not academically challenged. The club gym will be available for basketball, tennis and archery. They can also take a stab at Laguna's renowned art scene with classes that turn recycled materials into works of art. Besides fun at the club, the camps also take field trips to the Laguna Beach High School pool, Diver's Cove beach and local amusement parks.

The Patience Wright Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, based in Laguna Beach, will be celebrating its 70th anniversary in November. However, due to the chapter’s potential closure the same month, the event may be bittersweet. The chapter, established in 1939, is the oldest DAR chapter in Orange County and has spawned many other local chapters in cities such as Newport Beach, Mission Viejo and San Clemente. However, because of declining membership and decreased community visibility, Laguna’s chapter is in danger of being forced into closure.
