Welcome to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Saline County
The Boys and Girls Club is full of happy, smiling kids playing board games in the game room or finding new interests in some of the wonderful rotations and classrooms.
The fun you have here in the early morning free time and the rotations is the best! There are classes where you cook, learn about technology, and so much more! The classrooms help build up the club, they help build Knowledge, Strength, Kindness, and Responsibility.
The main room of the club is the gym, we have basketballs and footballs; but make sure to get a bouncy one! It is filled with kids that love running, playing, jumping, and sports. You shouldn’t be very shy to ask someone to play with you.
Having a concession stand and yummy food here is a great thing. We have a food court with candy, chips, sodas, water, and Powerades big and small.
The first week for breakfast we had cereal, sausages with milk ,and some muffins. One of the days for lunch we had sandwiches and the next chicken nuggets. All of the food was great and I look forward to the next meal.
The wonderful staff members at the Boys and Girls Club are the best and very nice. They make it safe, calm, and very fun to be here everyday. They respect you, they try their hardest to keep you safe, and make this place as fun as it can be.
They’re serious when it comes to danger or keeping you safe, but can mess around and have fun when they need to! Without these magnificent staff members the Boys and Girls Club would not be how it is now.
