Mission Statement

The goal of the Recreation Program is to afford Black Point Beach Club members and their guests the opportunity to take advantage of a reasonably priced summer recreation program providing outdoor and indoor activities for children ages three through twelve.  The Recreation Program provides the children of this Association the opportunity of forming friendships and learning basic water safety skills in a safe and caring environment.

Club Session

Black Point offers a 7 week Summer Recreation Program that provides fun activities and swimming lessons for kids ages 3-12.  “Club” runs from 9:30AM – 11:30AM, Monday – Thursday at the clubhouse plus 3 Friday special events.  Swimming lessons are from 12:30PM-1PM and 1PM-1:30PM, Monday – Thursday, at Main Beach.

Drop Off

The doors open at 9:30 sharp.  Children seven and older report directly to their counselors and group.  Children three to six years old must be personally delivered to and picked up from the counselor for safety.  Children seven and older are dismissed at 11:30 sharp.  The intersection directly in front of the Club House is blocked to traffic for the safety of children on bikes.  Please use Ridge Trail as an alternate route at dismissal.   <
