Due to the Winter Weather Advisory in our area, please call 410-263-2542 after 7:15 a.m. on 
Tuesday, January 27th, for a Club closing update. Thank you!
When school's out, Clubs are in. 
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship after school. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision, or out on the street when school is out. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.  Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. 

Founded in 1988 BGCAA serves more than 2,200 youth a year from the ages of 6 to 18 in six full-service Clubs in Anne Arundel County. Clubs are open every day after school and during school holidays, when youth most need productive outlets and a safe place to learn and grow. In addition each of the six locations offers Summer Camp for youth from the ages of 6 to 12.  

Our mission is to  inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.   BGCAA is dedicated to providing a world-class Club experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who walks through our doors. We strive to help all members stay on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, while demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. When School's out, Clubs are in!
