Important Questions:

Who participates in the GYC?

The GYC primarily serves Forest Oak Middle, Gaithersburg Middle, Ridgeview Middle and Lakelands Park Middle Schools. However, participants may come from any school.

Is it safe and supervised?

Safety and proper supervision is our top priority. While our staff comes from a variety of backgrounds, they are all chosen for their ability to work with youth in a fun, yet appropriate manner. Many of our staff members are in college and working towards their degrees. There is always an adult supervisor on all of our trips and at special events. All City Youth Services staff complete a State and Federal background check.

How much does it cost?

Joining the GYC costs only $15 for residents and $20 for nonresidents per year. Each participant a receives a membership card allowing them to go to all GYC events and trips at a discounted price and to participate in all Youth Center programs.

GYC Trips on Half-Days & Holidays

Please remember our trips serve students at several different schools and that spaces are limited. Registrations are taken on a “first- come, first-served” basis. Check the GYC calendar for details on trip destinations.

Cost: Each trip has its own registration form and separate cost. Registration forms for each trip are available about one month before the date of the trip online, at the Activity Center at Bohrer Park and both Youth Centers.

Half- Day Trips - There is a free shuttle provided for FOMS, LPMS and RVMS participants after school to the departure location. After a trip is over, parents will be required to pick up their child at the pick-up location.
