School Age Care (SAC) offers kids from five to twelve years old opportunities to experience various fun, engaging, and age-appropriate activities. They implement Boys and Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) programming in Character and Leadership Development; Education and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness & Recreation.
Kids enrolled in the SAC program can build friendships to support their social and emotional development. They also have the opportunity to increase their leadership abilities through different BGCA opportunities. Through training and mentoring SAC professionals learn to support youth development.
SAC operates before and after school, full-day care/camps on school holidays, teacher in-service days, inter-sessions, and during school closings. SAC may be offered in Child Development Centers and other installation facilities, such as youth centers and schools. SAC programs complement, rather than duplicate the school day.
