How it Works

Daily Fees After School:

            Standard Rate - $3.00/day      OR                $40.00/month (must be pre-paid)

Those who qualify for free or reduced lunch are eligible for a waived fee, but must fill out the scholarship form.

Club members come directly to the Club lobby (attached to the Edgewood library) after school at 2:45 p.m. or 3:35 p.m.
Students sign-out and/or pick up is located at the Boys & Girls Club front desk. Enter the building under the blue arch with our hand-clasp logo.
Students will receive homework help, dinners and a snack, as well as participate in other fun activities. Our goal is to provide them with a fun and safe out-of-school environment.
Kids DO NOT have to attend the full 4 hours. The Boys & Girls Club of Wooster has an open door policy, letting kids sign-in at any time, however, once a child signs-out, they will not be allowed re-entry unless returning from a pre-approved activity.

A Wooster City Schools bus drops off Monday through Friday at 5:30 p.m. at Cornerstone Elementary, Community Action (Corner of Pittsburgh & Palmer), Melrose Elementary, Intersection of Cleveland Ave. & Smithville Western, and Parkview Elementary. Bus times are approximate, and bus stops may be skipped if there are no riders for that particular stop.
