ABOUT BGCEC

  • Since 1961, the goal of the Boys & Girls Clubs of East County has been to provide a safe haven for children 6-18 every day after school and during the summer months. Our six facilities in the communities of Lakeside, El Cajon, La Mesa, and Santee are fully staffed and equipped to provide more than 2,500 children with a safe, active and fun place to stay, play and learn until it’s time to go home. No child is denied access to the Clubs due to the inability to pay the dues, and scholarships are offered to families in need of financial assistance. In order to keep our membership dues low, we need the support of our community and beyond.
