Are you asking which is better? If that's the case....I would say the YMCA is better all-around. At the YMCA, the entire family can participate in activities together. At the B&G Club, participation is limited to the kids. I don't know who runs the B&G Club now, but the guy in charge of the YMCA is arrogant.

I can't say a negative thing about either organization. The Club's mission is to serve youth. All of their programming and the facility is deisgned for kids. The cost to be a member of the Club for a child is much less expensive than the Y. You really can't compare the 2 due to the fact that the Y has a much bigger budget than the Club, due to the fact that the Y charges a family membership. We, as a community, are very fortunate to have both facilities.

I think the Boys & Girls Club has a better Summer program this year. It's cheap, and the kids have fun. Lots of fun stuff going on from what I've heard.

I believe the club is way more affordable. Some of the y's prices for transportation are down right ridiculous!

Too bad they aren't enforcing immigration laws. ICE could have probably taken away several tonight at the old Boys and Girls club. I'd say there are probably a hundred or more Hispanics in this building tonight. It caught my attention when I was getting gas at Akards a block away I could hear them playing that annoying Mexican Polka music. Drove by there and they were everywhere (although the sun was going down). According to the Hispanic services here in town approximately 70% are here illegally so it would be safe to say about 70+ illegals having a grand ol' time.

Just hope Obama doesn't sue me for posting this.

Did you ask them if they were illegal?

ICE is a joke anyway. All they are is a slight inconvenience to illegals at a huge expense to the taxpayers (yet again). The deported person is usually back in the same town within two months.

I know the coaches are all volunteers, but is it too much to ask that they don't blow their tops at these "NFL worthy teams" they all seem to think they have? Some of their behavior is absolutley absurd and it's not teaching our kids good sportsmanship.

My child has attend both the YMCA Summer Camp and the Boys and Girls Club Program. If you are looking for shiny, clean and new, you won't be a Boys club fan. I did observe the summer camp program at The Y when he went and found there was a good bit of time spent standing in line getting ready to go do stuff. The cost of each program is hugely different. While we spent $350.00 for the summer program at Boys club last summer, we spent on the average of $165.00 per week at the Y the summer before. you are talking about $2,000.00 for the Y summer experience or $350.00 for the Boys Club experience. Both allow for swimming and other field trip activities. Both require you send your child for the day with breakfast, lunch , beverages and snacks. Our Y camp was a total outdoor experience , unless it rained. With temps in the Atlanta area often reaching 100 and staying there until well after 4 , I at times felt bad about that. I did have my reservations about boys club. My first visit left me unsettled. Our first time there was spent during school break over thanks giving. We got a very affordable yearly membership . He enjoyed it very much and asked to go back after that a few times and we also spent spring break there. He decided on Boys club the following summer for summer camp. I agreed. Getting ready for this summer , I asked him if he wanted to go to the Y, Boys Club, or a third camp option herein Atlanta. He very quickly and surely said Boys Club. I at times wonder if there is good supervision and organization. When we go to check in in the morning, he scans his card, says hello to everyone and is always greeted by the girl at the front desk. He sees many kids from his school there and has made a few other friends as well. While I would say the Boys and Girls club may not be for everybody, it sure has been a great one for my son. If you are unsure, I invite you to go visit your local BAGC, you may very well like what you see.

The forum you are posting in is for Frankfort Indiana. Not for Atlanta. They boys an girls club in Frankfort Indiana is great. They are affordable, kids have fun and they have great field trips that children rarely have to pay for.

So it's OK for you to call people names?
What makes it OK for you to be that way but not the poster?

No its not ok and I don't run around calling people names,but when an ignorance is shown especially when it really has nothing to do with the topic,u have to let them now how they are realy sounding and acting.Hey if he/she HATES Hispanics, I am no one to judge but I will tell them there ignorance ,I assure u if they would have walked in no one would have disrespected dem in any way,on contrary they would of offered food drink ect....And u and everyone nows that's true we are not hating people not everyone sorry let me refrain,but it's sad that this is spoken on a topic that has nothing to do with this
