Looking for a safe, fun After School Program for your children? We have you covered!

After a period like no other, kids and parents have never been more ready for Back to School. Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Charles County has played an essential role for kids, families and communities.

After School Program: All active members can participate in an in-person after school program at both locations including daily meals. Annual memberships are $25 per year per member (ages 6-18).

  • Available at both our St. Charles and O’Fallon Units.
  • Clubs are open from 2:30-7:00 pm M-Th and 2:30-6:00 pm on Fridays.
