About the club
Since opening in June, the Boys & Girls Club of Steamboat Springs has 607 enrolled members, unit director Heather Martyn said.
The club offers an after-school program at the George P. Sauer Human Services Center on Eighth Street for 6- to 18-year-olds from 3 to 7 p.m. daily. The after-school program is free for those who have paid the $10 membership free.
The club’s School Days Off program, during select school holidays, runs from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at a cost of $1 per hour or $10 per day.
Martyn said because of the economic recession, the club hasn’t received any funding from the Boys & Girls Club of America. She said the Steamboat chapter relies on grants and donations to operate. It has a $350,000 annual budget.
Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 776410 or dropped off at the club, 325 Seventh St. For more information, call the Boys & Girls Club at 970-871-3160.
