PROGRAM DESIGN & EXPECTATIONS

The Redondo Beach Community Services Department REC Club provides a safe place for students to study and play after school at one of our designated City facilities while following the LACDPH guidance and directives. The health and safety of our participants and staff remains our highest priority.

Staff will assist and support students during homework/study time but will not tutor or teach them. After homework time, staff will lead activities both inside and outside. Our REC Club staff look forward to safely engaging children in many creative activities like open art projects, crafts, beads, outside non-contact games, board games, special events and more. Please follow our Instagram page to see all of our past endeavors, rb_afterschool.

Due to the Covid-19 health and safety protocols, RBUSD is unable to accommodate the City of Redondo Beach Community Services Afterschool REC Program on campus during the 2020-2021 school year. The City of Redondo Beach REC Club programming to support remote learning and after care at the city facilities is ongoing and will be expanded when possible.          

 DETAILS
This program is for children ages 6-12 and in first through fifth grades. The fees are $499 for the first child and $461 for each additional child for the 4 week session April 13th through May 7th (19 days, $5 registration fee included in cost). The average cost per week is $130 for the first child and $120 per additional child/ren. 

Program opens at 1:00pm (1:30pm for drop-off) and 6:00pm for pick-up. For the schools within walking distance of the REC Club Afterschool Program locations, with the exception of Birney, staff will meet the registered children directly after school at 1:00pm and walk them over to the REC Club Afterschool location. Birney students will not be escorted by staff. Recreation staff will be at the Perry Park Senior Center location at 1:00pm for those students walking from Birney. Jefferson and Beryl students will need to be dropped off at 1:30pm to the REC Club Afterschool Program location.  

LACDPH Covid-19 safety protocols and guidelines will be followed.

The REC Club Afterschool Program is open when RBUSD schools are open and observes holiday & teacher in-service day closures. Students attending school districts outside of RBUSD will need to be aware of these dates and plan accordingly. The REC Club Afterschool Program fee is for only days in service.

REC Club is subject to change, cancelation or modification. Decisions will be based on the guiding directives established by local, county, state and federal authorities relating to COVID-19.
