Registration will begin Thursday, August 13, 2020 at 6:00am, online at The season families should select is “School Age Care for Distance Learning Model School Year 2020-2021.” If you have any questions, please call our Adventure Club office at 763-504-5320.

Adventure Club provided critical care last spring, as well as summer care these past few months. We will continue our robust, student-centered programming this fall, while continuing to follow strict health and safety protocols such as social distancing, hand washing, wearing face coverings, contact tracing documentation, and cleaning and sanitizing. If Adventure Club is part of your care decision this school year, we would be honored to work with your family.


Please note:

  • If you paid a registration fee when fall registration opened last April, you will not need to pay another registration fee, but you will need to re-register. 
  • If you are a Tier I essential worker and you choose the 9:30-3:30 free option only, you will not be required to pay a registration fee. 
  • For all other Tier I options, you will be charged a registration fee. 
  • All Tier I workers must supply a letter from their employer stating they are a Tier I essential employee before their Tier I contract will be accepted. 

We are opening registration at all of our elementary schools but reserve the right to combine sites if registration is low in certain buildings. We will keep registration open until a specific site reaches capacity. If that should occur, you may be placed on a wait list or be asked to choose another location.

After you register your child, site staff will reach out to you as the first day of care approaches to give you site specific information regarding drop off and pick up procedures, what to bring, meal information, daily schedule and much more. Transportation will not be provided for child care as Adventure Club is a drop off and pick up program. 

In the event the district switches to another learning model, we will share the corresponding care plan at that time. Please note, a change in learning model would require a re-registration process so it is possible a family could have two care contracts in place as we move between learning models.
