In the event of inclement weather, it is difficult for us to implement a blanket policy. We will do our best to open on snow days. However, we ask that you remember, Club Staff need to travel to and from the Club. Just as we do not want to risk the safety of our Members, we do not want to risk our Staff's safety either. Please call the Club and check our website for updates in case of inclement weather.
 
Q : What is a 'Drop In' Program?
A : A 'Drop In' Program consists of an open facility, where children are free to come and go as they please. We do not adhere to any state or federal guidelines concerning staff to member ratios. Typically the ratio is 20:1, similar to a school setting. We do not charge hourly, weekly or monthly fees.
