Dear Parents & Guardians

It is such a privilege to serve your kids and family. We are excited for the opportunity to combine our elementary and teen programs at our Bremerton Teen Center facility full-time, effective January 7, 2019.

With the consolidations of programs, December 21st will be the last day of programs at the Naval Avenue Elementary location of our Bremerton Branch. We are working with Bremerton School District to provide transportation from the elementary schools to the Club at 3102 Wheaton Way.  We will be hosting an Open House on December 4th from 5:30pm - 6:30pm with Club staff to answer any questions you may have and provide tours of the Teen Center.

We piloted this combination of programs and services this summer with much success.  We heard great feedback from parents about the new opportunities and access to equipment that elementary aged members had in the Teen Center facility, as well as having all the kids, ages 6-18 in one building. Teens will gain more access to leadership and mentorship opportunities at the Club. There will be designated areas in the Club for both elementary aged Club members and teen Club members, like we have in our traditional Club models that serve ages 6-18.

We are excited to be able to offer these enhanced benefits that operating out of our Teen Center facility will provide. The transition of the Elementary Program location allows us to consolidate our programs and resources, while expanding quality program opportunities for youth in Bremerton.

We look forward to the experiences this will provide all of our age groups and families we serve. Our number one priority is to be able to provide a safe, quality and fun experience for our members.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We have been honored to serve your kids and family and look forward to continuing to do so in the future.



Sincerely,

Carrie Holden 

President/CEO
