GUIDELINES FOR CLUB MEMBERS
Children under the age of 12 must be supervised by a parent or babysitter while participating in lessons and other activities (lunch, swimming, beach time, etc.). If the participating child is sponsored by a member grandparent, the grandparent may serve as the guardian.
Only member and member’s partner’s children over the age of 12 can be on the grounds without supervision.
Members can only use babysitters to supervise their children. Babysitters must be at least 16 years of age. A supervising sibling, acting as a babysitter, must also be 16 or older and cannot participate in any Junior Program activities at the same time. Members should arrange lunch for babysitters.
SPONSORED AND WAITLISTED FAMILIES

Children whose parents are on the Wait List may participate in the Junior Program. One parent must be present to supervise the child regardless of age.
