The Boys & Girls Club will be coordinating the afterschool transportation from the Club. Please try to plan one week in advance. It will be the parent’s responsibility to call the Boys & Girls Club by 12:00pm, if your child will or will not be riding the bus home on a day that they were or were not scheduled to ride. Disrespect to the bus driver and other students will not be tolerated on the bus. Please do not call your child’s school for any changes; call the Boys & Girls Club at our number of 715-627-1389 Ext. 2 before 12:00pm or e-mail us at [email protected]
The program fee is only $15 for the entire year! This is a special rate for 6th – 8th graders enrolled in the afterschool program. Typically, the BGCLC Annual membership fee is $25. The fee allows youth to attend the Boys & Girls Club on dates outside of the afterschool program.
