The Club's Mission...
The Fort Smith Boys & Girls Clubs mission is to help youth of all backgrounds develop qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. Through our association with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, we seek to enhance the quality of life for the youth of our community.
Anyone between the ages of six (6) and eighteen (18) can become a club member. The Fort Smith Boys & Girls Clubs is a drop-in youth services organization where members have the opportunities for recreation, new acquaintances, athletic programs, structured activities and interaction with FSBGC staff.
• The FSBGC is a private membership organization.
• Visitors can purchase a daily pass for $2 ($4 in summer). Anyone without a membership or visitor pass cannot attend & will be asked to leave.
• The FSBGC makes no claims to be a provider of daycare or babysitting services.
• The FSBGC does not assume any responsibility for the time or manner in which members arrive or leave our facilities or properties.
