***Unfortunately, we are currently operating on a wait list at all three sites. Please complete the form linked below to add your child to our waitlist.
We recognize that the COVID-19 crisis has created a variety of new gaps and needs in our community. The Boys & Girls Clubs of La Porte County team is committed to evolving our programming as needed to support local kids and families.
While schools are operating virtually, this means providing children with safe places to spend their days. Through a partnership with Michigan City Area Schools, we will be offering daytime Clubs at Pine and Springfield elementary schools, plus our Charles R. Westcott Club. In addition to receiving technology and internet access, Club members in grades K-8 will enjoy in-person academic assistance, healthy meals and plenty of fun activities.
Please know that safety is our top priority. Precautions will include small groups, minimal room transitions, extensive cleaning/sanitizing protocols and the use of Personal Protective Equipment for members and staff.
The anticipated timeline for this program will be as follows:
August 14 at 8:00 AM– Pre-registration opens for families in need of daytime childcare/technology support
August 17 at 8:00 AM – Pre-registration opens for all other children
August 19 to 21 – Staff safety training, families report to sites to finalize registration
August 24 – Daytime Club services begin at Pine/Springfield
August 31 – Daytime Club services begin at Westcott
Must know info:
-Club membership is completely FREE for 2020/2021!
-Daytime Club programming will run from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
-Afterschool programming will be available at the Westcott Club from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
-Due to capacity restrictions, registration is currently limited to children participating in the MCAS daytime online learning program. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to enroll students who are participating in the Michigan City Virtual Academy program.
-Also due to capacity restrictions, we ask that you do not register your child(ren) unless they will be attending Club at least three times per week.
-Successfully completing the pre-registration form does not guarantee a spot or a particular site. After the registration period ends, we will begin contacting families to advise of site placement and finalize registration details.
-Once all Clubs are filled to capacity, remaining registrants will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as additional spaces become available.
