Club Discovery

Club Discovery is an inclusive, after-school program designed to provide a framework to explore the world in a safe environment for children with and without disabilities. During Club Discovery, children will learn through building friendships, strong bodies, and relationships with the community. Life skills will be practiced in a community setting as children sing, move, play games and cook food together.

BONUS! One free membership will be awarded per family upon completion of three full sessions of this program. If your family already has a membership, the newly awarded membership will extend the current membership to the end of the month of completion the following year. Qualifying families will receive the memberships once the sessions are completed.

Registration for Session 3 is now open! Click here to register.
