Flaming Monkeys Team





The Flaming Monkeys, a youth robotics 4-H club based in Boone County, has found a home within the Belvidere Township building. "The BotCave" as it is known is in the lower level of the building. Formed in 2009, the Flaming Monkeys previously met in the homes of the team's adult mentors. The township extended an invitation to give them a permanent site in 2012. The club consists of high school students throughout Boone County.
