Clubs are a designated time where a special interest activity is offered. Staff offer choices and children then choose among those choices. A win-win all around. Kids get to choose an activity, staff offer something they have an interest in, and the group have a common interest (no sour pusses-usually). This is an ongoing list with a short description. Look for these activities elsewhere on this site with details! Starred (*) Clubs indicate that I have added more details on another entry! Click on the title to go to that page!
