Boys & Girls Club of Detroit Lakes
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Detroit Lakes serves local school-aged children. Our Club provides fun, engaging and structured after school and summer programming.
Our caring, professional staff work hard to offer fun and meaningful activities that help children succeed academically, practice healthy lifestyles, and develop good character and citizenship. Our programs seek to help children develop competence, usefulness, belonging, and influence in order to enhance their self-esteem - ultimately helping them achieve their full potential as young men and women.
The Boys & Girls Club is a safe place where children begin great futures each and every day.
In order to provide kids with the most enriching experience possible, our Club is in the midst of a fundraising campaign to raise $6.5 million for our new facility.
We are humbled by the outpouring of support for our building project so far - with just over $6.2 million raised from community members, businesses, foundations, and others. Our campaign goal is 95% raised and we are confident that with your help, we will meet our goal. Every gift counts!
And here's an update on the building! The construction of our new building began in August 2018 and will be 29,650 square feet, almost double the size of our former Club building! This will allow us the opportunity to serve more club members and continue increasing our enrollment. In 2005 we were serving an average of 32 club members, whereas in 2017/2018 we were serving 150 daily. We hope to see those numbers continue increasing as we open our new facility.
