Welcome to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas. The Club pledges that it will make every effort to insure that the member along with the parents are provided with a positive experience in fun, learning, and personal growth. To insure this, it is very important that the member and the parents learn about the Boys and Girls Clubs and their important role in the Club.
It is every Club member’s responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner that will bring honor to their good name and that of the Boys & Girls Club. Each Club member must be a mannerable at all times whether at home, school, church, the Club or any public event. Club members must respect themselves and others.
It is the parent’s responsibility to insure that these guidelines are upheld by the member.
REGISTRATION & MEMBER FEES
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas serves youth ages 5, (Entering Kindergarten in the Fall of the current year) to 18 years of age during the School year and the Summer Program, (10 week program). Proof of age is required for all 5 and 6 year olds for insurance liability purposes.
To become a member you must complete a membership application and pay a $20 non-‐ refundable Registration fee, (paid annually).
Membership fees are $55 a week, per child for the first two (2) children and $15 for each additional child after two. We do accept CMA (Childcare Management Agency) as a payment method for membership fees. You may contact CMA directly at 256.534.5110 to obtain additional information.
It is the parent’s responsibility to pick up the member or to make arrangements for the member to be picked up from the Club each day by closing time.
The staff at Boys and Girls Clubs are not paid overtime therefore, if you pick up your child/children after 5:30pm in the Summer and after 7:00pm during the School Year, you will accumulate a late fee at the rate of $5.00 for the first minute and $2.00 for each additional minute there after, (UNLESS PRIOR ARRANGEMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE WITH THE UNIT DIRECTOR). If you accumulate a late fee payment is due immediately. Your child/(ren) may not return to the club until all late fees have been paid in full. (Late fees may vary according to the individual club.)
