What is the Boys & Girls Club of Washington County?
For more than 10 years, BGCWC has enabled young people most in need to achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Clubs provide a safe place, caring adult mentors, fun and friendship, and high-impact youth development programs on a daily basis during critical non-school hours. Club programs promote academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. BGCWC is located in Marietta, Ohio.
How many kids do we serve?
BGCWC averages around 80 per day in the summer and around 40 per day in the after school program.
Why are Clubs important?
Every day, 11.3 million kids (1 out of 4) leave school with no place to go. And every summer, 43 million kids lack access to summer learning programs. This means that millions of our nation’s youth risk being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe. However, research shows that what happens during the out-of-school time can have a significant impact on reversing the negative trends facing youth, including dropout rates, obesity and violence. And that’s what Boys & Girls Clubs are all about – providing youth with a safe, constructive, supportive environment when they are not at home or at school, where they can have fun with peers and be guided by trained youth development professionals.
What ages/grades do we serve?
BGCWC serve youth, Kindergarten-12th grade students from all communities and walks of life.

Before School Program: $3 per day

BGCWC's Summer Program is $10 per day OR $45 if you come all five weekdays
