Any incoming kindergarten through 12th grade child may enroll for the school year program until we have reached capacity. For the summer program any incoming 1st through 12th grade child may enroll until we have reached capacity.
As long as your child is able to abide by the Club rules and can function in a large group setting, he or she may attend. We do not turn any members away, and continued membership is based upon the child’s ability to abide by our member code of conduct and follow the Club rules.
Our hours of operation vary by site and if it’s a regular school day, summer session or an early release day. Visit our locations page for more information and look at the calendar. On in-service days or spring break please pack a sack lunch for your member.
The cost for a school year membership is $110 and the cost for a summer membership is also $110. For enrollment dates please refer to our registration page. If you are new to the Boys & Girls Club we encourage you to call and ask for a tour.
The Boys & Girls Club is open to children from all backgrounds. While it is affordable for low income families, it is not limited to a specific income bracket. We welcome all members to attend without qualification!
The Boys & Girls Club is designed to be affordable to all families. However, if you have a need for financial assistance, contact Lance Patterson at the information provided. No child will be denied a general membership due to inability to pay and scholarship funds may exist to help.
We provide transportation from all USD 308 schools on regular school days. Please make note we do not provide transportation on early release days or holidays.
Our staff is a mixture of adults, college students and high school students. They go through training multiple times per year. We value professionalism and seek to hire individuals who have a well-rounded sense of responsibility and integrity, and who are mature enough to work in a professional setting. We DO have a small number of youth who volunteer their time through the Junior Staff program but they are under the supervision of paid staff.
While supervised opportunities do exist for mentoring, role-modeling, and more, the Boys & Girls Club is fortunate to have program areas designed specifically for teen members.
1) If a tornado warning is issued during operational hours the Club will take appropriate measures. Members will not be allowed to leave.
2) If a tornado watch is issued it is up to the parent to make the decision whether to pick up the member or not.
3) If school is dismissed due to inclement weather, all Club sites will be closed.
The Club, an independent non-profit organization, relies on the generosity of individuals, businesses and foundations who donate money as well as time, expertise and knowledge.
We primarily communicate with parents by phone or email. Written field trip reminders are sent home with Club members. You can also keep track of many upcoming events on our calendar.
We have an open door policy that states members are allowed to enter and leave the Club. If you wish for your child(ren) to remain at the Club, it is your responsibility to make sure your child understands this policy. If you have any questions contact the Director of Operations or Site Director when you drop your child(ren) off.
