If you are not a GAPS student we may have additional scholarship funds available. Please call Membership Services at 541-926-6666 for details.

Typical cost for summer program is $75.00 per week/ per child or $50.00 per week/ per child if you qualify for free and reduced lunch

In an effort to provide the most equitable registration process the following procedures have been put in place:

  • Parents/guardians are required to fill out a waiver at the time of registration in order for their child/children’s spot to be confirmed.

  • We encourage parents/guardians to print off and fill out the waiver in advance to help expedite registration. Printed copies will also be available onsite.

WEEKLY FIELD TRIPS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE

HOW TO ENROLL:

We are still operating at a very limited capacity due to Covid-19 restrictions; our maximum capacity will be 135 kids. Due to the school district scholarship we are anticipating that we will fill up for summer quickly. Guardians will need to enroll and sign up for each week they wish for their child to attend online HERE.

To reserve your spot in our summer program, use your Parent Portal login and select all the weeks you wish for your child to attend, this will reserve their place. If your member is a GAPS student, make sure GAPS is selected as the rate category (this should be the default selection).

The system will automatically indicate that we have met the capacity limit for each group, so if you see that the week you’re wanting is full please call Membership Services to be added to a waitlist, and we will be in touch if something changes.

If your child is not regularly attending program (less than 3 days a week) without communication from parents regarding the absence, we reserve the right to remove them from our program and move them to the waitlist to allow for us to serve families that are maximizing the use of our programs.

Please review our Safety Plan and Waiver below for additional information on what to expect for Summer Program as well as the safety measures that are being taken here at the Club.

Virtual resources as well as the Summer Lunch Program partnership with GAPS will continue as resources for families. We will continue to monitor the CDC and State health requirements and will increase our capacity as soon as it is safe to do so.
