Who We Are

Welcome to the Boys & Girls Club of Bloomington.

We are an organization dedicated to serving the youth in our local community. We provide camps and programs during after school hours, holiday breaks and summer time. The cost for attendance is $20 per year.

We have three core program areas: Healthy Lifestyles, Academic Success, and Good Character & Active Citizenship.

We are a United Way Agency! Click here for more information.

We have three club locations throughout the Bloomington area.

Our main unit is located in Bloomington on Lincoln Street. We have our Crestmont Unit, where we serve those living in the Bloomington Housing Authority. We also have the Ellettsville Unit, located about 20 miles west of Bloomington, in the heart of downtown Ellettsville.
