To join the Club you must register online at www.bgcfc.org and select the icon Register Now on the right hand side of the screen. You will be required to make a non-refundable $15 annual membership fee payment when you register. This payment secures your spot in the program. Once your payment has been processed, you will receive an email receipt from Boys & Girls Club with a link embedded in it. Please follow this link to complete the membership application online. Once we have received your online membership application, we will contact you regarding additional paperwork that will require your signature, have you come in for our mandatory parent meeting (to view the site and discuss rules and payments, etc.). Once all required paperwork and your first month's program fee have been received, your child may begin attending the Club. It is your responsibility to notify your child's school that they will be attending Boys & Girls Club after school.
Should the Club site be full when you attempt to register, you will be directed to the Club waiting list. No fee is required to place your child's name on the waiting list. The Site Director will contact you if a spot becomes available at a later date. You may call 301-600-1875 for additional information.
The Burck Street Club is fully handicap accessible. Our facility includes a Game Room, Art Room, Technology and Learning Lab and Kitchen. Outside we have two basketball courts, an extensive playground, a pavilion, and several grassy areas for all types of recreational play. Members are provided with a snack (and lunch if during the summer program), are provided homework assistance, and given a variety of age appropriate programs and activities to choose from each day.
The monthly fee for the after-school program is $350/year or $35/month. There is a $5 discount for each family member after the first full paying member. We do offer financial assistance on a case-by-case basis with proper documentation (W-2 form or most recent tax forms and financial assistance application). The annual membership fee is due for each family member regardless of whether you have been approved for financial assistance. Program fees are due on the first of the month and no later than the 7th of the month. Program fees received after the 7th will be considered late and incur a late payment fee (and may prevent your child from attending Club).
Payments may be made by credit card by visiting our Home page and selecting the Pay Now icon on the right hand side of the screen. We also accept cash, check or credit card in our office. Checks may also be mailed to our office.
The Burck Street Club is open after school until 6:30pm. Members must be picked up by 6:30pm by a parent/guardian or by a person listed on their contact information. Late pickup fees ((depending on how late pick up is) will be charged for members picked up after 6:30pm. Members attending the following schools will be picked up at their school and transported via a Boys & Girls Club van to the Burck Street site: , Lincoln ES, North Frederick ES, Ballenger Creek ES, Ballenger Creek Middle School, Parkway ES, and Orchard Grove ES. Members coming from other Frederick County elementary schools are welcome, but they must provide their own transportation to the Club. We do offer drop-in service for members on days that FCPS is closed. Members must sign up ahead of time and pay the $15/child drop-in fee BEFORE the actual day.
