BGCUV 2020 SUMMER PROGRAMS
The Boys & Girls Club of the Umpqua Valley is committed to the health and well-being of our members and staff. We are excited to reopen for Summer and will only offer programs that can operate within the guidelines set by the CDC and state/local regulations. We will not be able to offer themed Summer and Sports Camps or typical drop in programs as we have done in the past.
We will provide weekly summer programs starting June 15 between the hours of 7:30am – 5:30pm. At this time, programs will be for new and existing Club members entering grades 1-12 in the Fall. In person, pre-registration is required on a first come, first served basis. Registrations will begin on Monday, June 1 at 8am for enrollment at a cost of $50 per week. This is in addition to our $52 annual membership fee. A limited number of scholarships are available for those families that qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Stable groups of 10 youth will be established at the beginning of each week and that group will remain intact all day for the remainder of the week. Based on the size of our facility, and the number of staff, we will only be able to begin our programs with 4 or 5 groups.
Last Summer, we averaged almost 200 youth per day at our facility, so one can imagine the challenge of only being able to accommodate 40-50 in the beginning. We acknowledge that this will be disappointing to the many families that depend on the Club.
We appreciate your patience as we work through the guidelines to ensure the safety of all participants. As the state moves into future phases, we may be allowed to increase the number of youth we can serve.
Please call our office at 541-440-9505 if you have further questions.
