For the Kids
The Best Club for Kids and Families…
Congress Lake is this area’s first choice as a family club. Here children can experience a special club lifestyle centered on fun, numerous supervised activities, and friendship. Kids can pick and choose between numerous programs offered in our resort-like atmosphere, and parents can feel comfortable knowing their children can enjoy all that CLC offers in a safe, friendly environment.
Kids’ Social Life at CLC
The Club hosts the best parties for kids all year round. Our holiday events are second to none, and include annual favorites such as the Children's Christmas Party, Brunch with the Easter Bunny, our Family New Year’s Eve, and the spectacular July 4 Extravaganza & Carnival. Inflatable bounce rooms, jugglers, face painters, stilt walkers, laser tag, water balloon launchers, sword fighting pirates, magic shows, rock climbing walls, all contribute to kids' events that are fun, fast paced, and keep the kids smiling until the party finally ends. Other can't miss events for the kids include weekly kids-only themed parties during the summer months, field trips, Family Bingo Night, monthly Midnight Swim and Tennis Under the Lights events, a family holiday field trip, and a hilarious Build-a-Boat cardboard boat race for Father's Day!
Kids’ Sporting Activities at CLC: Golf….Swimming….Tennis… Fishing... Horseback Riding
CLC offers all of these timeless summer activities to children of members. Children may discover they truly enjoy or excel at these sports, and these early experiences can set the stage for a lifetime of enjoyment!
Is your child a budding golfer? We provide an organized Summer Golf Program with all levels of instruction from committed PGA teaching professionals. Play the course as a family on Sunday afternoon! CLC kids have their own special scorecard and special tee boxes allowing them to enjoy the game when playing their first round.
Imagine swimming all summer long from morning to night at an open air pool in a beautiful, quiet country setting - what a great memory to have years from now. The Pool is the hub of activity for CLC kids from toddlers to teenagers. Clean, safe, and professionally supervised, kids can enjoy lessons, compete in a spirited swim team meet, hang out with friends, or swim with Dad after his long day at the office.
If your children currently enjoy tennis or would like to learn, our Teaching Professional makes time spent learning and playing the game relaxed, fun, and inclusive. It is a great way for young adults to prep for the high school team, or just expend youthful energy at summer-long tennis camps available for ages 3 - 13+. The Club's two hard and four clay courts provide a perfect setting to spend hours during the summer.
And if your kids enjoy the water and like to go fishing (or would like to try it), casting a line in the trout pond or fishing on Congress Lake with Grandpa for crappie and blue gill are other wonderful activities no other area clubs can offer. Our Youth Fishing Program meets once a month during the summer to teach kids about fishing techniques and safety.
Yet another great outdoor activity available here is horseback riding for children of all ages. CLC provides weeklong summer day camps and individual riding lessons at the Hartville Equestrian Center.
Kids’ Dining at the Club
Our trained staff ensures that kids enjoy their meals here, and feel comfortable and welcome. In fact, our special Family Dining Room is designated solely for members dining with children. Not only do we offer very affordable kids’ meals and free buffets to kids under 6, but also we provide a special “Tweeners Menu” for your older children that don’t want to order from a kid’s menu. If you have a 'picky eater' in the family, your server will bring your child something special that he/she likes, upon request!
When children arrive for a family dinner at CLC, an assortment of toys, coloring activities, and more are always available to keep them occupied during dinner. Also available to families is our KIDS' CLUB program every Thursday and Saturday night from October to May. Our trained staff of babysitters provides a kid-friendly dinner, toys, movies, and a unique activity at each Kids' Club date for the older kids. We also encourage school-age children to bring their homework to work on with our educated staff. We are committed to making sure your children enjoy their time at their club!
