American Legion Jersey Boys State

Family Day 2017

Friday, June 23rd


Sponsored by

The New Jersey Boys State Foundation


Boys State Family Day gives parents, family and friends the opportunity to have some fun in the sun while meeting their son's counselors and fellow statesmen. Come learn what your son has been up to at the American Legion Jersey Boys State program and find out why we call it "A Week That Shapes the Future."


Family Day includes:

q      Cookout with hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta, salad, and dessert

q      Entertainment including selections from the Boys State Band

q      Best City and Best County awards presentation announcement

q      The American Legion Jersey Boys State Graduation Ceremony


The fun of Family Day begins at 11:00am on the Rider University Main Mall. Each Boys State "city" will have a designated "home base" at the Student Center where parents can meet their sons and their friends and counselors.


Please plan to bring picnic blankets or beach chairs if you wish to sit outdoors with your son and his city. Limited indoor seating will be available.


In the event of rain, Family Day will be held inside Daly Dining Hall, with graduation to follow in the Alumni Gymnasium.


Tickets require only a minimum charitable donation to the New Jersey Boys State Foundation -- $16 for adults and $11 for children under 12. Since there are a limited number of tickets available, please buy all tickets (or provide your son with a check to buy tickets) in advance at Boys State registration on Sunday, June 18th. Delegate tickets will be paid for by the Foundation. Checks should be made payable to "New Jersey Boys State Foundation" or NJBSF and the number of adult and child tickets being purchased should be noted on the memo line of the check.
