eNews from The Hills May 16


Dear Members:

With the summer-like weather we’ve seen this past week, the number of people visiting the club is way up. To preserve an enjoyable experience for everyone, we are thinking about ways we can reduce the influx of guest visitors during the busy months ahead. This may mean changes in our guest-pass policy or other measures to minimize crowding. Please stay tuned.

To better accommodate you, we’ve added two new cabanas on the pool deck and also installed a few new barbeque grills. The cabanas provide a shady area for families and friends to relax at poolside, and soon can be reserved via our website. Please contact Jeni at [email protected] to obtain a username and password to access your account online. See below for other policies about cabana reservations.

Of course when it’s hot and the club is operating at full capacity, it’s critically important to observe our safety and courtesy rules. Please make sure your children and guests follow our rules and observe posted regulations. To help out in this regard, we will designate an employee to monitor the pool deck in addition to our lifeguards (on duty as of May 24). If you ever have a concern about a safety issue or our regulations, please let us know.

Sometime next month, we will install new day lockers just outside the changing rooms. These storage units will have weather-proof digital locks and we hope they reduce crowding and clutter in the locker rooms. Also note that we are making improvements in the clubhouse to isolate the child care center from the exercise studio above. No classes will be held on May 21 or May 22.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for our summer kick-off event on Memorial Day, May 26 from 12noon to 3pm. We’ll have music and a special BBQ lunch. Call the front desk to reserve your meal (339-0234, ext. 10), and you’ll be automatically entered to win some great prizes like a free Pilates session, swim lesson or a massage!

Thanks for your cooperation and helpful feedback.

To your health,

Ernesto Chamorro
General Manager

Kinderdance Summer Camp

imgDesigned for 3-to-5 year olds, featuring songs and dances from the hit musical "Frozen" and fun themes like Dancing at the Beach, Dancing with the Animals A-Z, and Dancing on a Jungle Safari! An engaging, musical experience that blends physical and creative development with preschool-education concepts. We incorporate colorful props, music and dance moves. Children learn the basics of tumbling, floor gymnastics, ballet and tap, while free-movement is fostered in imaginative realms like the sea and jungle. Kinderdance teaches to the “whole child,” building self-esteem through positive reinforcement, encouraging new levels of physical development, and stimulating the brain with colors, shapes, letters and numbers.
