CLUB INFORMATION

Working Families Summer Relief Program

From June 15th through August 21st, our Grants Pass and Talent Clubs will be open at a limited capacity for a Working Families Summer Relief Program. As always, safety remains our number one priority and we are doing everything possible to keep children, our staff, and volunteers protected from the COVID-19 virus.

Following the Oregon Health Authority’s Guidelines on School Aged Youth Summer Programs updated on July 24th, the Club has attendance limitations and enhanced safety measures. 

  • Programs will be offered at the Grants Pass and Talent Clubs (Talent program will begin at the Talent Community Center from June 15th – July 3rd)

  • Program is currently full, wait list has been created at both sites as we hope to add additional cohorts in the near future

  • Call the Clubs’ Front Desk to be added to the wait list:

    • Grants Pass Membership Services – (541) 479-1923

    • Talent Membership Services – (541) 292-4851
  • Youth must be entering Second through Sixth grades this fall

  • Program Cost is $75 per week paid at the beginning of the week; contact Membership Services for financial assistance

  • As of now, program will run through August 21st

  • Program Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Upon this limited reopening, enhanced safety precautions for staff and Club Members are as follows:

  • Temperature and well-checks will be required upon arrival daily

  • Staff will wear masks

  • Physical Distancing of 6 feet will be strongly encouraged of youth participants 

  • Stable groups of 10 youth will remain with the same staff throughout the summer 

  • Enhanced and rigorous cleaning will take place throughout each day

We continue to monitor information from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Oregon Health Authority for updated information, and are advising all staff, families, and youth members to continue to take precautions as recommended by the CDC.

ONLINE ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES

Our Program Directors have been busy compiling all sorts of enrichment activities, links to free educational sites, fun worksheets and “get-moving” ideas on our website and Facebook – from games you can play to stories being read to staying active and so much more! They’ve also created videos to “interact” with all of the Club Members we miss so dearly. Check out the videos on our YouTube Channel.
