Any one else use the boys and girls club?

It has been our only source of entertainment. Do you have a good one near you or a YMCA? My kids go for drop in play time and have been loving it!

  • My kids did go to ours (5 yrs ago) and I was NOT pleased with it at all! They do not supervise the kids very well, pick up time was 5pm, and at 4:55pm when I was driving over to pick up my kids I saw them WALKING Home along a very busy road- I was beyond Pissed!!! My kids went on a 'field trip' with B/G club to a water park, the kids were not supervised, someone stole my son's shirt, towel and sunscreen bottle and my kids came home with horrible sun burns (guess the 'supervisors' on the trip did not bother to put sunscreen on my kids- even though I sent it with and requested they use it.)
    So I would never ever send my kids back to that place again!!!
