Junior Activities

Being a family club, how we bring up our children is of utmost importance to us. The Club's focus is to create quality athletic programs and experiences which reinforce social and athletic skills that set the foundation for an active adult life; this has become a primary reason many families join Pine Orchard.

We offer quality tennis instruction, golf clinics, an excellent swim program and sailing instructions. We also offer arts and crafts for the children, and special week-long workshops in STEM and Bricks4Kids. These program allow opportunities for your child to be actively engaged throughout the summer.

The Junior Activities Program Book “Fun in the Sun” is completed late-May and will be distributed via email.

Please note: For all activities, unless advertised, children should be supervised by a parent, guardian, responsible adult, or sitter over the age of sixteen. For all outdoor activities, we highly recommend you child to have a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
