Clubs are for guests ages 8* to 18** years old and require a minimum of 20 paying members, though we are willing to work with new clubs in their first year with the program to help them grow their club.  Most Clubs at BMBW and AV have historically been organized through schools, but they can also be started by PTA and PTO groups, community recreation centers, youth groups, scouting troops, home schooling groups, and so on. You just need to have more members ages 8-18 than adults within your Club.
