In-Person Camps

Dropoff:

Club members may arrive as early as at 10:00 AM for normal Summer Camp, and 7:30 AM for extended day Summer Camp. Temperatures will be taken at the door and children must wear face masks in accordance with CDC guidelines.

For both dropoff and pickup, parents are not permitted to enter the Clubhouse for the safety of our members, staff and families. Please park in marked parking spots only. Fire lanes and handicapped spots are restricted for their intended purpose. Parking in these spots could lead to a ticket or your vehicle being towed.

Pickup:

Parents or guardians must come to the door of the Clubhouse to get your child and sign them out no later than 5:00 PM (unless participating in extended care.) This applies to any member under the age of 14. If someone else is to pick them up then the Director must have written instructions directly from the parent or legal guardian.
