In the Community: Boys & Girls Clubs

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula

OPENING DOORS TO NEW DISCOVERIES

Busch Gardens ® Williamsburg and Water Country USA ® have provided guests with meaningful experiences for more than 40 years with world-class coasters, entertainment, and tastes from around the world. This year, we are excited to open our doors to Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula to help inspire the youth in our community.

Throughout the year, our parks and team members will be connecting with our local Boys & Girls Clubs members to provide meaningful experiences to learn about different cultures, career opportunities and the importance of conservation. We are excited to open our doors to these Club members, allowing them to make memories and have fun while learning at the world’s most beautiful theme park through our Pass It Forward program.

PASS IT FORWARD

During the month of April, a Single-Day Ticket was donated to our local Boys & Girls Clubs for each Annual Pass sold online. These tickets will be used throughout the summer for the Clubs’ field trips and in-park educational opportunities.* Thank you to everyone who joined the Boys & Girls Clubs Movement and helped pass it forward to the deserving kids in our community.



Thank you for joining the Movement

BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS GARDEN

In March, Boys & Girls Clubs of Southeast Virginia and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Virginia Peninsula planted their very own garden at Busch Gardens. Together with our landscaping team and our park president, David Cromwell, they brightened up the park with vibrant colors. Make sure to stop by the garden on your way to the France village.
