About Our Clubs


Our mission is to enable all young people to reach their full potential as responsible citizens through education, recreation, and positive community experiences in partnership with the Grand Rapids Police Department.


Our vision is to provide a world class Camp and Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who enters our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.

Imagine What They’ll Become

We believe that every kid has an abundance of potential waiting to be nurtured and developed. We understand how important it is to give them the right kind of direction, support, love, and someone to look up to. With our presence in four spots around the community, we are all about making sure these crucial things are there for every child we work with.

At Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids, we envision a brighter future. A future where vulnerable youth of today evolve into the leaders of tomorrow. Through our Clubs and Camp, we transform “could” into “will,” and “maybe” into “definitely.” Together, we aim to create a better Grand Rapids.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth recognizes that as individuals, we are all uniquely different. We embrace people from all backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints. We strive to create and encourage a diverse and inclusive environment that values and understands differences.
