Boys and Girls Club coming to Forsyth

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Georgia is adding an eighth location. A new club will open at the William Hubbard Campus in Forsyth in time for the start of the 2017-18 school year.

The city of Forsyth and Monroe County Commission offered financial support for the club. The facility is provided by the Monroe County school system and features study labs, a game room and a teen lounge. As many as 200 children will be able to be served there, according to a news release.

The Forsyth club will be open 3-7 p.m. every day and longer during school breaks. The Central Georgia organization also has five Macon clubs, one in Warner Robins and one in Metter.

Boys and Girls Club summer camps start May 30 and run through July 21. The camps last 7:30 a.m.-6 p.m. and are held at four of the clubs: Anthony Road, Bloomfield Road and Shurling Drive in Macon and Wallace Drive in Warner Robins. Free breakfast and lunch are provided, as well as weekly field trips, college tours, recreation and summer tutoring.

The cost is $160 for eight weeks for children ages 6 to 12, and $80 for eight weeks for ages 13 to 18. There is no charge for rising 12th-graders. All participants must pay a $10 registration fee.
