Club Anvil 

About the Program

Club Anvil forms 6th, 7th, and 8th graders in an atmosphere of freedom, friendship, and fun. In this crucial transition-age before high school, the boys develop their freedom to choose the good on their own initiative. They grow in friendship with boys who have similar values. They learn to have active rather than passive fun that is demanding, engaging, and creative. The club meets after school twice a month and includes time for reading, prayer, sports, dinner, and a virtue talk.


Occasional Saturday father-son movie nights or visits to the nearby nursing home and a yearly father-son camping trip round out the Anvil calendar.


The Club meets as two groups: Boys in grades 6 & 7 meet as one group, and boys in 8th grade as another.

Transportation is offered from Western Academy to Westcott after school, and back to Western Academy by 6:45pm.


Membership Requirements:

In order to participate in Club Anvil, boys must personally desire to be part of the Club, to pursue its aims, and to be challenged to grow as virtuous leaders.

For Dads

Once a month dads are invited for pizza and camaraderie from 5:30 – 6:30.  We’ll listen to a short podcast about fatherhood and then hash out our thoughts on it until it’s time to drive the boys home.
