About Us

KidsCare, a division of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County, is a fee-based program which offers before and after school care and activities in a school-based environment. While hands on, this structured program is fashioned after Boys & Girls Club programs. The emphasis and focus is centered on homework help, arts & crafts, fitness and recreation, socialization and building good citizens.

KidsCare is offered to students in Goshen, Concord, Wa-Nee, Elkhart and MIddlebury school systems. All sites open at 5:30 a.m. until the start of school. All sites are open after school until 5:30 p.m.
