Club participation is affordable to all families. The most a family will pay for a child to be enrolled in our after-school program is a $15 annual membership fee and $15 per week. We also offer full-day summer camps at all locations, with a maximum fee of $65 per week. No families are turned away for inability to pay, and all grant funded locations, fees are always $0.
