Important for Parents
The Boys & Girls Club is an Open Door program. Children and teens come and go as they please to and from the facility. This means it is the parents’ responsibility to make sure that their child remains at the Club and does not leave the premises when you expect him/her to be there. The Boys & Girls Club is not responsible for walking young people to bus stops.
Due to COVID-19, the Club is restricted to 46 young people in the facility. Therefore, it is important for parents to reserve space as soon as possible.
Please contact the Club at 518-374-4714 to reserve space. Regular program hours (2:00pm -6:00pm). Once contacted, the Club will e-mail the Membership Application to you.
The Boys & Girls Club will be available to begin taking registrations on August 25 at 9am.
***Please note that the Boys & Girls Club is in mandatory shutdown from August 31-September 9. Therefore, there will not be anyone available to take registrations on those dates. However, parents may leave a voicemail and they will be handled in the order the calls were received.
