What is Vacation Club and why do I have to pay separately for it? We had to change our pricing structure for the 2019-20 school year. Because of the additional cost of staffing, field trips/special events, etc. on school breaks, and because not all of our Kids Club members attend Jefferson on these days, we broke these days out separately and call them Vacation Club days. Any day that we are open 8am-6pm is considered a Vacation Club day. If you need your child to attend on a Vacation Club day (ie. Superintendent Conference Day, Winter Break, Columbus Day Break, Spring Break, etc.), you can sign up and pay for those days individually. This way, we know exactly how many children to expect and can staff and plan appropriately.
If your child has a Kids Club membership for the month of February, for example, they would receive the discounted Vacation Club rate of $32 per day for the February break (as opposed to $42). Vacation Club days are NOT included in their membership, so you must register and pay separately!
The most important thing is planning ahead to register for Vacation Days at least two weeks in advance.
Please let us know if you have any questions – we know this can be confusing!
All members (new and returning) must submit an online member information form IN ADDITION to registering for the program.

Bussing to Jefferson may be available to students in the district through the Ken-Ton Transportation Department. You must submit a request form for alternate transportation directly to them. You can contact them directly at 874-8611.
Please note that because we are a community center that you pay membership fees for, Kids Club may not qualify as “childcare,” “daycare,” or an “after school program.” Jefferson Summer Camp, however, is a licensed summer day camp through the Erie County Health Department.
