Boys Achieving More, or BAM! is a program created and run by the Junior League of Greenwich to facilitate communication with fifth grade boys about concepts of respect, trust, communication and leadership. This program is open only to boys who reside in Greenwich and/or go to school in Greenwich.

To engage the youth, three facilitators from local organizations – Bobby Walker from the Greenwich Boys & Girls Club, and TJ Ramirez from ReachPREP in Stamford, along with the Greenwich Boy Scouts Council – work with the Junior League to design activities to engage the participants in the desired topics of discussion.

Junior League members create an “Amazing Race” through a portion of the Seton Scout Reservation where the participants walk in line through fallen trees in the woods, throw wood spears against a natural target, throw colored (environmentally friendly) paint powder against a rock, and fall off a log into a rope ladder held by the other participants.  These activities facilitate discussions on trust, health and exercise, balance, focus, and respect for other people, regardless of appearance.

  • The program is FREE to the Greenwich community
  • Each session will host 36 fifth grade boys
  • Please direct all inquiries HERE

**Signed release forms by a parent or guardian are required by the Junior League of Greenwich to participate in the BAM! program.**
