Frequently asked questions

How will social distancing be enforced?


This is a unique time and we understand and appreciate all concerns about COVID-19. The Summer Club will be a socially distanced environment. Each family will be required to socially distance from other families on site. We respectfully request that all families follow our social distancing guidelines and we will have staff on site to enforce this policy. Families or members who do not follow these guidelines will be asked to leave.




How many families will be allowed on site at a time?


The summer club can host 40 families at a time.




How do I reserve an activity? Will there be time limits?


Reservations will be required for tennis, basketball, volleyball, and the lake. Families can reserve areas by calling our office in advance. Reservations can also be made on site. Summer pass holders can reserve activities up to two weeks in advance. Week pass holders can reserve activities up to one week in advance. Day pass holders can reserve activities up to 48 hours in advance. We anticipate a high demand for our waterfront and tennis courts. Our waterfront & tennis courts will have a 90 minute time limit. Families can continue to enjoy these areas if no other families are waiting.




What happens if it rains?


Due to the concerns related to Covid-19, the Club will be an outdoor only operation. In the event of rain, the Club reserves the right to shut down operations. If time allows, the Club will resume operations when courts and fields are safe for play. Day and week pass holders will receive a rain check if they were on site for less than (2) hours due to weather. Rain checks may be used on any other day the Club is open for business (normal reservation policy would apply).




Should I bring my own equipment?


Equipment will be provided in most sports areas. We recommend you bring the following equipment: Tennis racquets Beach toys (for kids) Beach towels Sunscreen Bug spray Sandals or change of shoes Change of clothes Water bottles




Are there any dates that the club will be closed?


The Club will, on occasion, be closed for private events. Pass holders will be provided with at least (14) days’ notice of any Club closures due to private events. Private events will be limited to a total of (10) days throughout the summer season.




What's for lunch?


The beach club will have a variety of options including salads, sandwiches, wraps, and more! Bring your appetite as the food is sure to delight!




Where can I change or use the bathroom?


We have 2 public bathrooms available for use. We also have 2 porta potties available at the lake. Bathrooms will be sanitized frequently.

Each cabin will be cleaned and sanitized daily.
