• our local club •
Boys & Girls Club of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
• since 1957 •
The Boys & Girls Club of Detroit Lakes has been serving local kids since 1957, longer than any other Club in the State of Minnesota. For over 60 years, the Club “on the hill” has symbolized children, fun, and the future.
It all started on December 20th, 1955, when Mrs. Bernice Crovisier gave a gift to the City of Detroit Lakes. She gifted a 10-acre parcel of property, formerly home to the Crovisier family, to specifically be used as a children’s park as she recalled her own twelve children enjoying the land.
Within a year of Mrs. Crovisier’s gift, Independent Consolidated District 1 donated a former rural school house to the City of Detroit Lakes. The building was moved to the park to serve as a warming house for boys and girls. At the same time, community members were actively working to provide a solution to increased juvenile delinquency in the community. Meetings were organized and youth activities began to take shape.
In June of 1957, organized efforts of the community of Detroit Lakes enabled affiliation with the Boys Club of America. The Boys Club of Detroit Lakes became the first organized Club in Minnesota.
In the 1990s, in Detroit Lakes and across the nation, Clubs changed their name to the “Boys & Girls Club”.
