Membership Information

Membership at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo is FREE for all school aged youth. During the school year, younger youth must be currently enrolled in kindergarten, and older youth must be no more than seniors in high school.

A Membership Application must be completed by a parent/guardian for every youth eligible for membership. Parents/guardians must also attend a New Membership Orientation with each child becoming a member. After becoming a member, youth are members of all 3 Kalamazoo locations. There is no need to schedule an appointment for an orientation, just show up at one of the three orientations offered throughout the week.
