BRANSON, Mo. -- A lot of dancing could be seen at the Branson Landing Thursday afternoon after a flash mob took place in front of the fountains.

It's all part of a new national campaign by the Boys and Girls Club of America.

The idea is to raise awareness that 15 million kids have nowhere to go when school lets out at 3 p.m. The goal is to get America behind the movement.

"There are 13 Boys and Girls Club organizations in the state of Missouri,” says Billy Rader, with Boys and Girls Club of the Ozarks. “Boys and Girls Clubs of the Ozarks is celebrating down here today, but we're excited to be able to raise awareness that when the out of school time is here, the boys and girls clubs are here to serve our kids."

The kids practiced for about three weeks, before this big dance. They represent the Forsyth, Reeds Spring and Branson units.
