PJA/MJCC Transport - After-School Classes Campus Transport NEW!

MJCC offers a program on our campus in which we escort your child from the PJA campus to and from
after-school classes at the MJCC. We require all participants to sign a waiver. A new waiver must be filled out for each program session. Waivers must be submitted to the MJCC at least one week prior to the first class. Please contact Haley Webb, Camp Office Manager, at 503.452.3436 for more information. Space is limited. We recommend registering for this program at the same time of class registration to ensure your spot.
Per program session:
Cost: $6. Member Cost: $5. SP250
See Youth Sports grid below for FAST! class times.

Please note: Transport is an on-campus walking “shuttle service” and does not provide after-school childcare. Elementary aged children must be enrolled in a class that begins directly after-school. If an after-school class begins later than 3:45 pm Monday - Thursday or later than 2:45 pm on Friday, children must be enrolled in either an aftercare program through PJA or sign up for our new program “FAST: Fun, Activities, Study Time” as we cannot have children under the age of 13 without adult supervision at the MJCC between school ending and class times starting.
