Scheduling & Attendance Requirements 

Frequency of attendance is an important component of a quality and impactful Club experience, we want to make sure that the children we enroll are going to use the program on average at least three days per week throughout the summer. If your intention is to have your child participate at a lesser frequency, it is possible that we may not be able to enroll your child or may have to put them on a waiting list. 

Enrollment Criteria  

The Boys & Girls Club’s mission is to serve all young people, especially those who need us most. Enrollment decisions are therefore not made on a first-come-first-served basis but instead are based upon the needs of the child and the family for our services and frequency of attendance. Please contact Connor Schultz, Unit Director at cschultz@bgcmanitowoccounty.org or 920-470-8063 if you would like us to know more about your child’s needs.  

Fee Information

It is our mission to ensure that we serve the youth in our community who need us most and that a family’s income level is not a barrier to participation.  Thanks to the generosity of many friends and supporters of the Boys & Girls Club of Manitowoc County we can ensure that families of extremely low to middle income will still be provided a substantially subsidized program fee.  Families of upper income who utilize the Boys & Girls Club of Manitowoc County will be charged the full cost of service for our summer program.  As always, we understand that families face various challenges outside of income level and we ask that you reach out if you need help managing the cost of your child’s participation. The fee structure for the BGCMC 2022 Summer Program is outlined below for your reference. Any membership, participation, or summer fees only apply to youth ages 7 and older.

2022 Summer Program Statements will be sent out to all families on May 6th with payment due on May 27th.

Summer fees are in addition to the annual Club membership fee which is $15 for youth ages 7 years old through those in 6th grade. The Boys & Girls Club of Manitowoc County strives to ensure that financial limitations never prevent a child from fully participating in our programs and services. Families who need financial assistance or to set up a payment plan should reach out to Connor Schultz, cschultz@bgcmanitowoccounty.org.

How do I know my child has been accepted into the summer program? 

We will contact you via email with the status of your registration by the first week of May. If you do not receive an email by then, please contact Connor Schultz at 920-470-8063 or cschultz@bgcmanitowoccounty.org.

What if registration is full? 

If we have reached maximum capacity, we will place your child on a waiting list and contact you if space becomes available. Children in certain high-needs situations such as those who are homeless will not be placed on a waiting list and will be allowed to participate immediately. 

Outstanding balances 

If your account is not current, you will also be asked to bring it up to date to finalize enrollment for your child upon acceptance into the 2022 Summer Program. As always, the Boys & Girls Club works hard to ensure all children can participate regardless of their household income levels. Please let us know if you need help managing and covering the cost of participation. We never want an inability to pay to keep a child from becoming a Club member.

Face shields will not be allowed unless approved as part of a health or IEP plan.  We will continuously monitor guidelines and recommendations made by the CDC and DHS and update families upon any changes to this policy.
