How to Join
Membership is open to all youth between the ages of six to 18. To become a member, download our membership application:
When finished, please return it to the Clubhouse you wish to join (see our list of Clubhouse locations). You may also complete the application in person and sign up for an orientation. Members will then receive a membership card valid at any of our eight Clubhouses citywide.
Every Clubhouse offers a variety of different programs and resources. View all BGCSF programs here.
Members have access to all locations and activities during hours of operation and are free to come and go as they please. Although all of our Clubhouses are fully-staffed with trained professionals and our Club members are constantly supervised, we assume no responsibility for any members who choose to leave the facility.
Clubs are open Monday through Friday during after school and evening hours and most of our Clubs are open on Saturdays. When school is closed, Clubs are open extended hours. Many of our Teen Centers are open late night hours and offer Friday Night Teen time. During the summer, regular program hours are 10 a.m-6 p.m. daily, with early bird drop offs available at select Clubhouses. There is no Saturday programming offered over the summer months. Check your local Club for specific hours of operation.
Our summer experience includes access to all eight Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco Clubhouses, free lunch and participation in fun-filled programs in our five core areas plus favorite activities like field trips, swimming and sailing.
Youth can also enjoy a 10-day camp experience at Camp Mendocino, our 2,000-acre residential summer camp located between Willits and Fort Bragg in Mendocino County. There is an additional fee to attend Camp Mendocino. Scholarships are also available.
