BEFORE & AFTER CAMP
We have early hours (7-9am) & late hours (4-5:30pm) available each day for any parents who may need extended care. Before Camp costs $6 per day & After Camp costs $4 per day.
FREE BREAKFAST & LUNCH
The TTCC will again be offering free breakfast and lunch to all summer camp participants! Breakfast will be served at the TTCC, downstairs between 8:30-9am each day. Lunch will also be available on all camp days, served between 11:30am-12:30pm each day. This program is provided to us through the Belknap-Merrimack Counties, Inc. Community Action Program. This is a program of the USDA. USDA is an equal opportunity provider.
It is the desire of the Tapply-Thompson Community Center Board and staff to make our programs available to all youth in the community. We realize there are times when paying for a program can be a hardship on a family. We have created a scholarship application process to be used in these situations. Contact the TTCC office for details…
It is the policy of the TTCC to charge a fee for camp programs for the express purpose of covering expenses. It is also our hope that no area children be excluded from participating. Hence, a scholarship fund and work exchange program have been established in lieu of total payment. The TTCC tries to keep the cost at a minimum. The cost of camp in 2017 will be $80/camper/week.
There is a $10 registration fee in addition to the weekly camp fee, which will be used to buy each camper a camp shirt. The camp shirt will be required for the campers to wear on field trip days so we can keep a better watch on all the children.
Summer Camp Scholarship Fund
There are times that we have Summer Campers that are unable to afford the cost of Camp & Field Trips. A fund has been established for the purpose of covering these costs in order for the youth to not miss out on these exciting opportunities. If you would like to donate towards this fund, checks can be made payable to TTCC Camper Fund or on our website PayPal option. If you make a donation through PayPal please send us an e-mail to let us know it is for this fund.
On behalf of the TTCC Staff & Campers we thank you!
