My daughter and I love the Boys and Girls club a.k.a "The Club". From its secure check in and out system,the child ID tags, the non- stop fun activities and games my child comes home talking about, and the rules the children must follow to ensure safety. It's very Clean, well organized and managed. THE STAFF IS AMAZING AND UNBELIEVABLY FRIENDLY and the price is unbeatable! I can not think of any other after school/ summer organization I would trust my child with while I am at work.
