The Clubs offer kids a safe and positive place to spend their time before and after school. The Inchelium Club provides after-school enrichment programs from 9:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday, with various field trips and community activities occurring on Saturdays.

“Having the Boys & Girls Club come to the Inchelium Community is a vision coming to light for our youth. For many years we have searched for programs to increase the likelihoods of success for youth. The opportunities the Boys & Girls Club provides to the youth [were] imaginary,” explained Pamela Phillips, Unit Director of the Inchelium Boys & Girls Club. “To be at the initial stages of forming the Club is very exciting and challenging. We hope our Club will create an environment where youth can have fun, be creative, inventive, successful, and feel safe. I am thrilled and honored to be part of this Club that will hopefully provide our children with ventures to become exceptional citizens.”

The Club community center facilities include a gymnasium, game room, computer lab and multi-purpose room. Club members participate in a variety of after-school activities, including board games, arts & crafts, outside games and activities, scooter board, basketball and a variety of table games including pool, ping-pong and air hockey.

“We’re excited about bringing the Boys & Girls Club to the Inchelium community in partnership with the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation,” expressed Bill Tsoukalas, Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County Executive Director. “This will be the second Native American Boys & Girls Club in Washington State and will be joining a family of over 175 tribal Boys & Girls Clubs in the country.”
