For over 42 years, the Boys Girls Club of Otero County has served the youth and families of Alamogordo and the surrounding area. Over 185 kids a day take part in programs meant to build strong character, healthy bodies and sharp minds.
Our Club facility contains a full-size gym court, access to two outdoor playgrounds, a game room, an entertainment room, arts and crafts room, a learning center, a racquetball room, and a snack bar. Our Club serves members ages 6-18. The Club runs two main programs, Before and After school and our Summer program.
While our membership fees are low, these programs have costs, which we fund through grants, donations, community support, and fundraising.
Our primary sources of funding are Fundraising Special Events, Grants, Corporate and Individual Donations. We are not federal, state, city or county funded.
70 cents of every dollar donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Otero County goes directly to our youth members as well as our programming such as our After School Program and Summer Camp program.
