Remington Clubhouse

Remington Clubhouse

The Remington Clubhouse began in a home on Winthrop Avenue. A portion of the existing building was ultimately built on Guion Place in 1953 as the result of the dedication and fundraising efforts of the Women’s Auxiliary Club and the Remington Advisory Board. In 1972, through a matching grant from the Charles Hayden Foundation and a response from the City of New Rochelle, The Women’s Auxiliary and other community members made possible the addition of a gymnasium, game room, shower and locker room and offices to the existing building.
After more than 70 years in existence, this New Rochelle landmark has served generations of children as an after-school program. Today the Remington Unit serves nearly 200 children between the ages of 8–18 years old. They offer an array of activities from the Boys and Girls Club of America core program curriculum that revolves around Character and Leadership, Education and Career, Health and Life Skills, Sports, Fitness and Recreation and the Arts. Some of the core programs that are offered to the students are Power Hour, Healthy Habits, Passport 2 Manhood, Smart Girls, Triple Play and Torch Club/Keystone Club.
 
Through many of our national corporate sponsorships, the Remington Unit offers programs for our middle school and teenagers that focuses on career development, academic achievement and self-expression through the arts. We currently have aligned ourselves with Buffalo Wild Wings, Planet Fitness, Taco Bell, Microsoft and Hofstra (STEM Wise Program) to name a few of our program partnerships through Boys and Girls Club of America.

Through a donation from Pepsico, Remington currently houses a video/audio production center where the students have the opportunity to explore their hidden talents through media arts. We are also happy to announce that as of Spring 2017, we will have a full Kids Café in our newly renovated kitchen. It is through the relationships of major corporations, higher education institutions, city hall and most importantly, the community that Remington has served and excelled many students throughout the years. We are truly excited to see what the future holds for the Remington Unit of the Boys and Girls Club of New Rochelle.
