REOPENING UPDATE as of 9/9/20:
Parents & Guardians:
In order to meet the needs of the parents of the Pine Bush Central School District, we will be offering a Full Day Child Care Program, Monday through Friday, from 7am to 6pm at our Clubhouse at Circleville Park beginning Monday, September 14, 2020. Registration for this program is open to students in the Pine Bush School District. During this time, we have temporarily adjusted our billing schedule to allow for weekly billing. We will continue billing weekly until the district opens for hybrid learning, at which point we will resume our normal monthly billing schedule. Once the district opens for in-person instruction, you will have the option to adjust your registration to include Full Day Child Care programming on your child's remote instruction days, and/or After School programming on your child's in person instruction days.
We will not be able to offer School Break Club this year.
The Town of Wallkill Boys & Girls Club is taking all necessary precautions to avoid COVID-19 exposure, including (but not limited to) social distancing, wearing masks, and increased hand washing and cleaning.
Our Crispell Middle School Program opens at the end of the school day, providing parents and guardians with safe, supervised programs for their children during the critical after school hours when it matters most. The program runs through 6pm each school day. Beginning in September of 2015, our Crispell Middle School Program is now bused to Pine Bush Elementary School daily. Parent pick up is at the Pine Bush Elementary School.
The After School Program focuses on providing every Club kid with a few essentials each day: every Club kid gets a healthy snack, homework help, or tutoring and FUN activities each and every day.
Most Club locations start with snack and Power Hour, an hour for the Club kids to focus on homework, studying for upcoming tests, and playing games or completing activities designed to reinforce the lessons they learn during the school day.
All Club locations also focus on the five core areas of Youth Development, according to Boys & Girls Clubs of America: Character & Leadership, Health & Wellness, The Arts, Sports & Recreation, and Education & Career Development. All Club locations also complete a monthly community service project and have a monthly guest speaker to keep things interesting!
Our Middle School Program volunteers help the younger students with homework, reading, and Power Hour!
Safety for our Club kids is the highest priority for our organization.
All staff members undergo annual criminal background checks and all Program Staff also undergo annual fingerprint clearance from New York State, are CPR and First Aid-certified, and receive a minimum of 15 hours of youth development training annually.
