The Block Island Club opens for season

By Olivia Simon | Jul 02, 2013

The Block Island Club has opened for the 2013 season and is ready for another exciting summer.

It offers activities and lessons for children to take part in and is a great way to become connected with the island summer community.

The B.I. Club offers a variety of memberships, from one-week to a full summer membership. Membership provides multiple opportunities for children and their families who are able to use all of the Club’s facilities, including tennis courts, sailboats and kayaks, and swimming in the Great Salt Pond. Lessons in tennis, swimming, sailing, and arts and crafts are available to children up to the age of 14 for an additional fee on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

Adults can also take clinics on these days. Further details can be found on the Club’s website. The Club is dedicating Wednesday mornings to an Outdoor Adventure program. This will be led by Pearson Treanor and Shane Baker. The purpose of the program is “to promote an appreciation of the unique character of Block Island’s natural environment among children and adults in the community,” according to the Club’s literature. In addition, this year Greg Pearson has taken over as manager of the Club, and is being assisted by Ned Taylor.

The Club is dedicated to continuing developing its relationships with other island camps, such as Camp Mohegan and the Early Learning Center, by opening its facilities to these clubs on certain days of the week, which can be found on the website calendar.

For more information on memberships, classes, staff, and the Club calendar, you can check out the Block Island Club website, contact the Club office directly, or stop by in person. The Block Island Club is located on Corn Neck Road. Look for its sign on the left-hand side just before Mitchell Farm as you are heading north.
