Club K.I.D.S.

Club K.I.D.S. (Kids Ideas Developing Skills) is a recreation program that operates at various elementary schools in Mission.  The program is a joint Mission Parks, Recreation & Culture & School District #75 cooperative project licensed by the Ministry of Health.  It is open to children in Kindergarten to Grade 6.  Club Kids (CK) is tax deductible and accepts Affordable Child Care benefit plans.  Each of our dedicated CK instructors are 19 years of age and older, have recreation base training and meet or exceed Fraser Health requirements and standards.

The safety of your child is our top priority.  We have taken extra steps to ensure your child’s safety during camp including:

  • Daily symptom screening for all children and staff
  • Increased cleaning of all areas with particular attention to high touch surfaces
  • Increased hand washing and cleaning throughout the day
  • Creating a personal space and bag for each child with their own supplies
  • Outdoor activity will be the focus of each day
  • Increased space between children and avoiding hugs, hand shakes and high fives to best address social distancing guidelines
  • Children who are ill are not permitted in the program.  Should a child become ill while attending the program will be isolated from the group and monitored by staff until they are picked up promptly by a parent or caregiver.

We want your child to have an enjoyable experience, therefore the focus will be on a variety of fun activities through the day to keep your child busy and engaged.

For information on the Affordable Child Care Benefit and other subsidy FAQ click here.

If you have NOT registered your child for the Fall, 2020 CK program, please follow these steps:

  1. Obtain a current copy of your child’s immunization record – available from Fraser Health.  (If you have submitted one to us before and your child has not received any further updates since then, then a new form is not required.)  If your child is not immunized you will need to fill out the Immunization Declaration section located on the Registration Package.
  2. Obtain a PDF copy of any custody agreements involving your child (if applicable).  If you only have a printed copy of this agreement, take a photo or scan each page using the Notes app on your iPhone or similar app on your android device.
  3. Take a clear in-focus colour photo (mug shot) of your child in a well lit room where their face is fully and clearly visible.  Ensure that the photo is at full resolution.
  4. Complete the on-line CK Registration Form in full and submit.  (Please note, you must complete the entire form at one time.  The form will not allow you to stop and pickup at a later date/time.  Therefore, be sure to have all of your information ready.
  5. Once complete, click “Submit” at the end of the form.  All the information you submitted including attachments will automatically be forwarded to our office.
  6. You will not be able to register your child in Club KIDS until the registration form has been received and verified.  No drop offs or in-person deliveries of information will be accepted.
  7. Within 48 hours of submission, one of our receptionists will email you either approving or disapproving your application.  If approved, and you have not used our registration system before, you will also receive an e-mail from our registration system with a temporary username, password and link.  You must follow that link and login to the registration system with your temporary username & password within 72 hours to activate your account.  If your application is not approved, it is likely due to an incomplete application package.  Further instructions will be included in the e-mail.
  8. If the season has already started and “registration day” for that season has passed, a receptionist will call you to register for days that are still available for your respective school.  If you are registering for the upcoming season, please follow steps 9 & 10.
  9. Once your account is activated, you will have access to our registration page which will allow you to ‘reserve a spot in line’ on your school’s registration day and time as listed below.
  10. Once you reserve your spot on registration day, a receptionist will contact you within 3 hours and take your actual registration and payment over the phone.
