Lunch

This summer we will be providing a free lunch, thanks to the Clarkston School District, to all Club members. Lunch will be served from 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm. If your child arrives after this time, they will not be served a lunch. If your child chooses not to eat the provided lunch they may bring a sack lunch. We ask that you do not send any food items that require our staff or your child to cook, microwave, or to prepare at the Club.  I.E., Top Ramen, Frozen Food, etc.

  “Outside the Club” Activities

The “Outside the Club” Activities will begin at 12:25 pm and end at 4:00 pm.  This summer your child will only be able to attend an outside activity once per week with their specific age group. See our age group schedule below.  Outside Activities are offered to enhance our Summer Program and are not designed to be our Summer Program. For a child to be able to attend, payment must be made before 12:00 pm on the day of the activity.  If your child does not participate in the activity they will have to be placed with a different age group from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  We prefer that you do not pick up your child from special events, but we realize that at times, this may be necessary.  Please notify the staff at the Club and the staff at the event site.  There will be no refunds or credits given for missed activities.
Please discuss with your child if and when he/she has permission to attend “Outside the Club” Activities.  There is not adequate time in the day to allow each member to call for permission.  The staff will trust the member’s decision to attend or not.
