Buena Vista Club

The Buena Vista Club serves all children between the ages of 6 and 18. The Club promotes and enhances the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence. The Club is a safe place to learn and grow, all while having fun. It's the place where great futures are started each and every day.

The After-School Program runs Monday - Thursday, 3:00 - 7:00 p.m.; and Friday 3:00 - 6:30 p.m. Led by professionally trained staff, programs such as Power Hour (homework help), Fiber Arts, the Social Action Project, Arduino (electronics platform for interactive projects) and Spark Fitness, inspire and enable kids to realize their full potential. The BV Club also offers a summer program.

Club participants have run the BV Trails, created a 40-­foot art snake, become Junior Staff, learned chess and entered a national BGC fine arts exhibit.

Membership and Financial Assistance

Membership is open to all youth between the ages of 6 and 18. A membership application must be completed and signed by a parent or guardian each year. Our annual membership fee is $50 per child and includes all after-school programming. For all non-school days, we have a $10 daily fee. 

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch at school. Please speak with your Club's branch director or executive director for more information. Our mission is to serve kids who need us the most, so please ask us about financial assistance if you need help.
