Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How old do you have to be to join?

A: The Boys and Girls Club of Leduc offers programming for kids from 6 to 17 years of age. All kids. Even the kooky ones. In fact, we actually prefer those.


Q: Do you offer programs specifically for older teens?

A: Our Keystone Youth Leadership group is for ages 14 to 17 years and meets weekly from September to June. These kids will rule the world one day. So watch out.


Q: Do you have any summer programs?

A: Offered for children from 6 to 12 years of age for approximately 7 weeks in July and August. So put up your feet with a good book, and let us chase your kids around in the sweltering heat.


Q: Do you have any special programming for children from 10 to 13 years of age?

A: The Torch Leadership group is for children ages 10 to 13 and meets weekly from September to June. They are small, but mighty.


Q: Aren't you just a glorified babysitting service?

A: While we appreciate being referred to as "glorified" (in any capacity really), we actually provide way more than simple child supervision. Our program are targetted to the social, emotional, educational and physical wellness of our members.


Q: What does a donation to the Boys and Girls Club get me?

A: With every donation, the donor will receive a personal phone call from the celebrity of their choosing. Or a tax receipt, our undying gratitude and the knowledge that you helped a Leduc kid learn and grow in a safe and supportive environment. One or the other, but we get to choose which!


Q: Is Connor McDavid a member of Boys and Girls Club of Leduc After-School Program?

A: Yeah, No. And since our registration is now closed, he will need to wait until May to join. However, we are confident that he will find a productive activity to fill his winter months until that time.
