In some of our weekend, summer and special activities, we will charge a nominal fee to ensure attendance is met. Our philosophy is that if a parent pays a small amount of money, they will do everything in their power to ensure their child attends the program. For example, for a 6-week Saturday sports clinic, we will charge $5 for the entire session.
