FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is there an age requirement for your programs at the Rensselaer Boys & Girls Club? 

Yes, children entering our Afterschool Express Program must be 5 years of age or older, and must at least be in kindergarten. Children attending Camp Adventure must be 4 years of age or older, and must be attending at least kindergarten in the following school year (starting in fall). To participate in Teen Nights or other teen-oriented programming, members must be 12 years of age or older.  

When can I pick-up my child from the program they attend

Please keep in mind that adults not listed on a child's registration forms will NOT be permitted to pick up that child. When arriving at the Club please ring the doorbell and wait for a staff member to buzz you into the facility. This security system ensures safe and organized drop-off/pick-up for all families. 

 

Middle and high school children are dropped off at the Club around 2:45pm. Elementary school children are dropped off around 3:30pm. Parents can pick up their children from the Afterschool Program at any time after drop-off. The Afterschool Program ends at 6:30. 

For Camp Adventure guardians can pick up their children directly from camp at any point throughout the day. Camp transportation will begin bringing campers back to the Club at 4:30. If you intend to pick-up a camper from camp please ensure you arrive before this time otherwise you will have to pick them up from our Club. 

Do you offer discounts for members

Yes, most members qualify for scholarships to alleviate the burden of cost. Additional financial assistance is also available to families that need it. There are also discounts for families who register multiple campers for Camp Adventure.
