The Club

About the BCBGC (Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club)

The Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club, Inc. was founded on the Western Slope of Colorado in December 1999 in response to a lack of structured yet fun after-school and summer activities for youth in Montrose County Colorado. The first Club site was opened in the city of Montrose, while a second site was added in the town of Olathe in 2002. Since that time, the BCBGC has been at the forefront of youth development by providing programming that focuses on: social & emotional development, educational enhancement & leadership skills, and healthy lifestyles.

Working with young people from various backgrounds and circumstances, the BCBGC has actively sought to enrich the lives of all girls and boys within our community. We are dedicated to working in partnership with the parents, guardians, and all others that are concerned with the positive youth development process of the youth that we serve.

Who Can Join?

Any boy or girl in 1st - 12th grade that are between the ages of 6 - 18 may become a member of the Black Canyon Boys & Girls Club.

The cost is currently $180 for the 2019-2020 school year session. 2020 summer sessions rates are still being determined.

Parents must attend a parent orientation before their child can attend the program.

Note: There is a waiting list at our Montrose Club Site. Please feel free to contact the Club to see if room is available for the session in which you wish to register.
