Like many of our Club Members the Boys & Girls Club of Albany is eager to start our Summer Program.
We’ve been closely monitoring the CDC guidelines and requirements from State officials for the reopening of our programs. Ensuring a healthy and safe environment for members and staff is our number one priority.
The Club will open registration for Summer Programs on Monday June 8 at 8:00am. The first week of Summer Program will begin on Monday June 15. Summer Program hours will be Monday through Friday from 8:00am – 4:00pm.
Safety protocols have been formulated in accordance with CDC guidelines, which calls for a reduction in our capacity. We understand the important role this programming plays in mitigating learning loss, promoting healthy lifestyles, and providing crucial support for parents/guardians returning to the workforce. We will increase our capacity as soon as it is safe to do so.
With this necessary reduction in capacity our hope is to accept applications from current Club Members who are either: foster youth, military youth, parents who are essential workers as designated by Governor Brown, and/or youth who qualify for free/reduced lunch, seeking our services for at least 4-5 days a week. The Club will maintain the same cost for Summer Program as we have in the past.
In an effort to provide the most equitable registration process the following procedures have been put in place:
Registration will be in person only on Monday June 8 beginning at 8:00am and extending until the programs are full or 4:00pm on Thursday, whichever comes first. A line, maintaining 6 feet of social distancing, will lead to our main lobby where registration and payment will occur. We will not accept registration via phone or email.
Current Club Members from the 2019/2020 school year who are either: foster youth, military youth, parents who are essential workers, and/or youth who qualify for free/reduced lunch, seeking our services for at least 4-5 days a week will be accepted first.
Families will be accepted on a first come first serve basis for registration. Once program areas reach capacity we will place prospective participants on a waitlist. Capacity of 30 -1st-3rd grade, 30 — 4th & 5th grade, and 30 6th grade & above.
Parents/guardians must fill out a waiver as well as pay at the time of registration in order for their child/children’s spot to be confirmed.
The cost is $50/week per child or $35/week per child if you participate in the free/reduced lunch program with the school district.
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.
