ELEMENTARY PROGRAM FAQS
We ask that our kinder through 5th grade members do not bring or use cell phones or any electronics at the club because we believe kids should use club time to engage in activities without a screen. We also ask that kids leave these electronics at home because they are expensive, popular in demand, and can be broken or stolen. The Boys & Girls Club of Albany is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
If your child is already a member for the year and you have paid the annual $25 fee then no school days are free from 10am until 6pm. We offer “Early Bird” hours from 7am to 10pm at a $6 additional cost per day.
