HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO BECOME A MEMBER?
There are two (2) separate Membership time-spans:
Memberships for the School Year (September thru early June) are $20 per child.
Memberships for the Summer (mid-June thru August) are $20 per child.
HOW DO I GET TO THE CLUB AFTER SCHOOL?
We have partnerships with both the Coeur d'Alene School District and the Post Falls School District, so most kids ride the bus from their school to the Club. If you're interested in bussing, there is limited space from schools in Coeur d'Alene. Be sure to sign up with our Bus Sign-Up page. Some kids walk or ride their bikes to the Club if their school is really close and their parents are OK with it.
HOW WILL I GET HOME AT THE END OF THE DAY?
Most kids are picked up by a parent or guardian. Some will choose to walk or ride their bikes home at the end of they day, if they live close enough and their parents are OK with this arrangement.
