About Us

Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside (BGCO) is a youth development organization that is dedicated to providing a safe, fun and enriching environment for youth to spend time during non-school hours. We are open every day during non-school hours, when youth need us the most. For 70 years the Club has worked with Oceanside youth, primarily from low-income families, to engage them in academic enrichment programs and activities.  We serve 2,400 youth annually, providing stimulating and quality Science, Technology, Research, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STREAM) activities, and thousands more need these life-changing programs and positive guidance. In addition, we offer a unique program to adults with disabilities, called R.O.A.D.’s. 

Boys & Girls Clubs of Oceanside is a local, independent organization affiliated with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The BGCO raises 100% of the funds that support our life-changing programs through individual giving, events and grants. 100% of those funds stay right here in North County to serve youth in our local communities.
