Membership Questions

1. What is the Boys & Girls Club?

2. How much does it cost to be a part of the Boys & Girls Club?

To eliminate barriers for the youth who need us most, Boys & Girls Club of the Muskegon Lakeshore only charges a $5.00 annual membership fee. 

3. Is transportation available?

Thanks to partnerships with local school districts, transportation is available to the Club from designated schools. Please contact the Membership Coordinator at your site to receive an updated list of schools and learn how to catch the bus to the Club. 

At this time, transportation is not available from the Club to the member's home. Each member must be picked up by an approved individual noted on their membership application. Members 13+ may sign themselves out of the Club and walk/ride the MATS bus home with signed approval from a parent/guardian. Please contact the Membership Coordinator at each site with further questions/concerns.
