Our Palisades Summer FUN Program – Club Palisades 2020!

Registration will open for Club Palisades In March of 2020 and we are confident that summer 2020 will be full of wonderful poolside memories. We hope your children can join us for a week or two this summer at Club Palisades!

We are again pleased to report that Amanda Driscoll a MCPS elementary school teacher, is returning to lead Club Palisades this summer.  We are so excited to have her back!

Quite simply, the focus of Club Palisades is on creating life long pool friends and having FUN, while participating in sports, swimming, crafts and games.  During the summer of 2019, over 100 members and their guests attended Club Palisades!

Please see the overview below and access the registration form at the bottom of the page to sign up. For more information on the Club, please contact Jocelyn Rock, Volunteer Club Palisades Liaisons at

Apply to be a Club Palisades Volunteer

Volunteer Spots will be confirmed based on an application and interview by April 1, as each week needs enough volunteers based on club attendance. Applicants who are Palisades Pool members and who have attended Club Palisades themselves will have first priority.

Clubber Ages

Club Palisades is open to member children age 5, who have completed kindergarten and who can swim a length of the pool, to age 13. Non-members may attend if registered with a member, see application). Member children 13 and over AND entering 9th grade may apply to be volunteers to Club Palisades and receive community service credit (SSL hours).


Whether you’re looking for one week or six weeks, Club Palisades is the place for your Clubber! Club Palisades will operate for six weeks beginning on June 22th and running through week of July 27th. As a volunteer-operated Club, we only offer full week attendance options for Clubbers. We cannot pro-rate by day, nor refund for rainy days. No exceptions!!

Typical Activities

Club Palisades will vary each day but may include games such as basketball, soccer, volley ball, dodge ball, kickball, water polo, swimming, ping pong, tennis, water balloons, shuffleboard, board games, foosball and arts & crafts. Club Palisades will provide a snack each afternoon plus, every Friday, there will be a special lunch such as pizza or barbecue included in the fee for Club Palisades.  (***Please note: ALL tennis programs and swim/dive teams are separate from Club Palisades and not included in the Club Palisades activity with Early-Drop-Off fee nor the Palisades club cost.)

Club Hours

Standard Club Palisades hours are from 11am-3pm, which dovetails off of the morning swimming and tennis programs but your children are not required to participate in either swimming or tennis to attend Club Palisades.  3pm is pick up.  *Please note; you will be charged by the minute after the 3 pm pick-up if no prior arrangement has been made.  **Children under 8 are not allowed to be released to the pool.

Again this year we will also have an early drop off program that will allow you to drop your child off at the pool as early as 8:30 for pre-Club activities, like Swim Team, Tennis, and Diving. Regardless of your activities, Club Palisades staff/volunteers will coordinate transfers to keep your Clubber safe and entertained!

***Please note: all tennis programs and swim/dive teams are separate from Club Palisades and not included in the Club Palisades fee nor the early drop off with activity.

Schedule & Cost

Club Palisades Special! We are currently offering discounted rates for early enrollment through March 31st. Get $20 off each week your clubber is enrolled!

Club Palisades is on a week-to-week basis and will run from June 22th through Friday, July 27th.  The regular price effective April 1st is $190 per week ($152 for the four day week of June 29-July 2).   We offer a discount to families who enroll more than one child.  Additionally, we encourage signing-up for more than two weeks, and if you do, your family will receive a discount.  If you sign up for more than two weeks, your rate will be reduced to $165 ($132 for week of June29-July2nd) for each additional week.  For families that enroll more than one child, the first child pays $190 for the first two weeks and the second (and any additional) child pays $165 per child per week.  If you have two or more children enrolled for more than two weeks each child pays $165 for any additional week.

So for example, if you have three children, you pay $190 for the first child, $165 for the second child, and $165 for the third child for the first two weeks that they are signed-up for Club Palisades.  If they sign-up for three to five more weeks, you will pay $165 for the first child, $165 for the second child, and $165 for the third child for any additional weeks.  If you only enroll one child, you will pay $190 for the first two weeks and $165 for any additional week.

Early Drop-Off Options

We will also have an regular early drop-off (REDO) program from 8:30-11:00 each morning.  The additional cost of this option is $100/week.  If your child is taking any morning activity, you can sign up for Club Palisades early drop-off with and activity (EDOA) at a reduced rate of $35/week, in addition to the cost of the selected activity.(***Please note: all tennis programs and swim/dive teams are separate from Club Palisades and not included in the Club Palisades EDOA fee.)
