Cub Clubs & After School Childcare

Methow Valley Elementary Cub Club

Cub Clubs are seasonal enrichment clubs based at MV Elementary for Grades 1-6. These after-school clubs are offered free of charge, thanks to funding assistance from the Public School Funding Alliance! Most are run in partnership with our generous and talented community groups and volunteers including: Methow Arts, The Merc Theater, Classroom in Bloom, Methow Nordic, The Winthrop Ice and Sports Rink, MV Flyfishers, Methow Recycles and MV Riding Unlimited.

  • All clubs run from 3:20 – 5:00 p.m. and are offered in addition to our After School Childcare Program, which occurs daily for grades K-6.
  • Please let us know if your child will be absent – we take attendance each afternoon.
  • Bus service is available to Winthrop (Red Barn) and Twisp (Community Center) at 5 p.m.
  • The bus usually arrives at approximately 5:10 p.m. in Winthrop and 5:25 p.m. in Twisp.
