General Information for Boys & Girls Club Programs
- Space is limited in the Boys & Girls Club Programs, so please call the Club Director (go to Pickens Club, Gilmer Club or The CLUB Teen Center pages for contact information). The Club Director will setup an appointment for you and your child to come by and register.
- The application is extensive but all information is required by the various grant funding organizations that support the club. These grants are critical to keeping membership fees for our kids and parents as low as possible. Please be sure to include your child’s immunization records when applying.
- The membership fee is $50 per school year per child. There is a separate fee for our Summer Session and that fee amount is determined prior to the sign up date.
- Financial assistance is available for those who have a need. If you desire to apply for financial assistance you will be required to provide financial documentation when applying.
- Youth must attend the Club at least 3-4 times per week on a consistent basis in order to maintain their membership – we have many kids on our waiting lists who want to take advantage of the programs the Clubs provide. Please note that there are other afternoon programs available
