During the summer program, children age five and under shall not be left at the Center unless actually participating in a scheduled activity or accompanied by a parent or baby-sitter. The Center cannot be responsible for children who leave the building during scheduled programs or after 12:00 noon. If children come or are sent to an activity designated for an age group other than their own, the Director and staff reserve the right to ask the parents to call for the child. The Center cannot be responsible for younger children disrupting programs not planned for them.
All children who register must present proof of inoculations in a form similar to what a school requires for enrollment each year, which must include the date of birth for children who are age 6 and under. Due to allergies, please do not send any products containing peanuts or nuts to the Center.
The Chilmark Community Center depends on all its members for help. We expect and trust that members will cooperate with the staff, abide by the rules, and help keep the Center’s buildings and grounds clean and neat. The Center has a permit and is in compliance with state regulations. Copies of background check, healthcare, and discipline policies are available upon request. The Center reserves the right to cancel the membership of any person who does not abide by Center rules. Membership fees and tennis fees are not refundable.
Voluntary contributions of any amount are both greatly appreciated and fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law. See the Town Affairs Council section.
Our membership structure is designed to be inclusive of all types of families, and also to cover multiple generations. Friends and non-immediate relatives are welcome to attend the Center as guests of the member. Guests must register at the Center office, AND a guest fee will apply.
Discounts are available for year-round Martha’s Vineyard residents. To qualify, the prospective member must be listed on a town roll in any one of the six Island towns, and have any school-age children enrolled in a Martha’s Vineyard school.
