A staple in the community for helping children, the Boys and Girls Club of Indian River County continues to make sure that children have an enriching place to go and simply, be kids. I had the pleasure of visiting the Vero Beach location, but they also have locations in Sebastian and Fellsmere. Typically, the childrens’ time at the Boys and Girls Club is split between schoolwork and off time, but during Christmas break its all play, no work. The club has a full-size indoor basketball court, a full turf soccer field, multiple computer labs, and many different rooms for many different age groups. The club takes in children ages 6 to 18 and has many different activities and programs for all of those ages. The Boys and Girls Clubs of Indian River is an amazing safe haven for the children of Indian River County.
