Harnett County Parks and Recreation’s afterschool care program at the Boone Trail Community Center provides a safe, engaging, and nurturing environment for families requiring quality child care for after school. Our mission emphasizes creating an atmosphere that balances student enrichment, physical activity, free time in a stimulating and enjoyable setting, and time set aside to complete homework. The afterschool program offered at the Boone Trail Community Center provides parents with safe, convenient, reliable, and affordable out-of-school afternoon care for their children. The program maintains clear policies and procedures and actively encourages and welcome open communication and parent involvement.


The after school program operates from 3 PM (school dismissal) until 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program begins Monday, August 28, 2023, and ends May 31, 2024 (unless the school year is extended). The program will follow the school’s calendar and adjust for holidays and early release days based on that calendar. Early Release days that are on the Harnett County School Board’s Calendar at the beginning of the school year will be covered by Boone Trail Community Center After School Program staff. In cases of inclement weather, the BTCC afterschool program will follow Harnett County School District recommendations. If the school is closed/released early due to inclement weather, the after school program is also closed. We can offer teacher workday care on select scheduled teacher workdays (dependent upon staff availability). Available days will be listed on the registration portal online. The cost for teacher workday care is $20 per child, per day and children must be dropped off with their own lunch and snacks from home. Teacher workday care hours are from 730 AM- 530 PM.


Transportation via bus from a local area Harnett County school must be organized with the school in which your child is attending. Request that your child be assigned to the bus that arrives at the Boone Trail Community Center at 8500 Old US 421 in Lillington (Mamers), and the school should make proper arrangements. The schools that can accommodate this are  typically Boone Trail Elementary School and Western Harnett Middle School.
