About the Boys & Girls Club of Boone County
The Boys & Girls Club of Boone County was created in 2018 with the merger of the Lebanon Area Boys & Girls Club and the Boys & Girls Club of Zionsville. Three units in Lebanon, Whitestown and Zionsville serve over 425* kids daily and 3,000* total members between the ages of 5 to 18. In addition to our daily programming, we offer sports leagues, summer camps, and community programs. In Lebanon, we feed dinner to an average 85* kids, five days a week.
The Boys & Girls Club is more than just an after-school gathering place. Through purposeful educational and recreational programming, kids and teens gain new skills, make lasting friendships, and build self-confidence.
The Boys & Girls Club of Boone County enables all area youth, especially those that need us most, to develop
the skills, fitness, and character they need to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
I believe in God and the right to worship according to my own faith and religion; I believe in America and the American way of life; the Constitution and Bill of Rights; I believe in Fair Play, Honesty, and Sportsmanship; I believe in my Boys & Girls Club which stands for these things.
