Program Information

A typical day after school:

The middle school children arrive at the Club at 2:10. Between 2:10 and 3:00 the middle school members have the entire building to themselves including the technology room, games room, gym, and function hall. At 2:30 the high school members arrive. The high school members and the middle school members are combined in the function hall from 2:30 to 5:30pm. At 3:00pm the middle school and high school members move back to the function hall to be separate from the elementary children until 5:30pm. At 3:30pm the children have many different options: participating in an upstairs recreational activity (or during nice weather an outside recreational game), doing their homework, playing a video game, going on the computers, or just hanging out with their friends. In the function hall there is a designated homework room that is quiet where the children can do their homework at their leisure. Every day at 2:30pm there is a recreational game in the gym. Throughout the day in the function hall the middle school/high school members can sign up for turns on the Xbox 360, Xbox, Wii, and the computers for half hour intervals at a time. There is also ping pong, eight ball, foosball, and Texas hold’em tournaments. Other special activities for the middle school and high school members include dodgeball and flag football leagues, paintball outings, ski trips and the occasional bruin game.
