What's happening
We are a month in to the school year and the members are having a blast! Our members love spending their afternoons here. There is always something exciting and interesting going on in each area of the Club.
The games room is busier than ever with many different tournaments and the learning center is always full of members working on their homework.  The computer lab has great new programs being offered to children of all ages. Members are learning how to create YouTube videos, write blogs, and edit pictures. The art room continues to be one of the most popular places in the Club.






It's the midway point of the 2017 NBGC football season and with the increased participation and many tightly contested games, we look forward to seeing what the second half of the season has to offer. We would like thank all of our volunteer coaches and invite everyone in the community to come and support our youth. Please check our website for game dates and times.

Pick-up policy

As stated in our handbook,  any members in Grades 1st -7th must be picked-up by a parent, guardian, or any other pre-authorized adult. If you would like to add any names to your authorized pick-up list, please complete the form at the front desk. No child will be allowed to leave with any other adult or child unless the Club has written permission from the parent or guardian.


Many of our members walk or ride their bikes home. If you would like your child to be added to our "Permission to Walk/Bike" list, we will need the parent or guardian to complete the consents portion on the child's registration form.


We have these policies in place because we care about the safety and wellbeing of your child. The safety of our members is our number one priority at the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club.


Please feel free to call the Club with any questions or concerns.
