You can find the registration link via the MyClubHub Parent Portal start March 1, 2023.
A 2022-2023 completed membership application is required to attend BGCB programming in the summer.
Summer Center Weekly session price will be $100/week for 2023. This price is pro-rated for any sessions shorter than five days. A $20 deposit is required per week at time of sign-up. This deposit will be applied to the $100/week fee. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. Payments are due in full two weeks prior to the start of each session. Cancellations after the payment due date will result in the forfeiture of the registration fee.
Scholarship applications will be available at the point of registration beginning March 1st. When applying for scholarships, it is strongly encouraged that families pay the $20/deposit per session to hold a given session! Scholarship applications will be due April 1, 2023, and decisions will be made shortly after applications are due. However, many times camp sessions fill to capacity before scholarship awards are announced making it important to reserve a space for your camper by paying the $20 deposit upon submitting the scholarship application. If in the event that a family does not receive a scholarship or the scholarship does not make camp financially possible, these deposits will be refunded.
Drop In Hours will be available to all active members from 12:00-6:00pm during the summer for no fee. Registration is required for Drop In Hours and will be limited to ensure proper staff to child ratios. Registration can be found on the MyClubHub Parent Portal.

I cannot imagine a more important organization in our community for helping to give young people more opportunities to grow up to be strong and caring individuals.
While the Club has been servicing the kids of Bloomington since 1956, it was not until 1961 that the National Guard Armory located at 311 S. Lincoln Street was first used to house Club activities and programs. Fast forward three years later and the Club purchased the armory, thus making this site the official home of the Club. Since that moment 50+ years ago, thousands of kids, staff, and volunteers have walked the halls of the historic Lincoln Street Club.
Over time, it became strongly apparent that the Lincoln Street Club needed a modern facelift in order to serve even more kids in a more structurally-sound facility. That time came in 2016 when the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington officially launched the BIG Futures Capital Campaign – a community-led, collaborative effort to raise money to benefit the Lincoln Street Club.
With the strong backing of the community, the BIG Futures Capital Campaign provided the financial resources to update the Lincoln Street Club, and, in 2018, the renovated doors of the Lincoln Street Club were officially reopened to a new generation.
The multi-million dollar renovation included an updated kitchen space, a refurbished gymnasium, lockers to store member’s bookbags after school, mutliple program rooms, a dedicated teen space, staff offices, plus so much more! While the inside of the building has seen a significant upgrade, the original structure still stands offering GREAT FUTURES to all who enter the historic halls of the
