Boys & Girls Club of the Emerald Coast (BGCEC) is a youth development organization providing services to children ages 5-18 at Clubs throughout the Emerald Coast. BGCEC South Walton Club is located in a new building off Hwy 331 behind Coastal Branch Library.
The Boys and Girls Club of the Emerald Coast provides an environment where children can thrive. Children in grades K-12 are all welcome, and academic success is the most important thing at the club.
