My Club Story

Here’s how the Club Experience makes a positive impact on the lives of kids in our Greater Northwest Indiana communities.

A Safe Place, A Fun Place!


It’s good to know that your kids are having fun and working toward a “GREAT Future” in a “safe” place.


Since the incorporation of our Clubs in Lake County in 1954 and Porter County in 1971, we have operated under the traditional Club ‘Open Door’ Policy in which our doors are open to all members at any time during hours of operation. Safety of our children and our Club members is our top priority. As a result, we now operate under a Safe Passage Policy.
