The O. D. Epps Summer Youth Program (SYP) is a ten-week program designed to enhance the spiritual, emotional, and physical growth of each child. This is a children’s program with activities ranging from recreational to spiritual. Please remember that the SYP is not a daycare facility.
*The program is open to all youth ages 5 years old through 12 years old. (No Exceptions).
*Parents enrolling a 5-year-old must provide original birth certificate and a copy will be made.
REGISTRATION AND FEES
A Non-refundable registration fee in the amount of $75.00 per household is required upon receipt of packet. Weekly payments will be due on Mondays, no later than 5pm. Only cash or money orders will be accepted; NO CHECKS. Our objective is to defray expenditures such as food, utilities, salaries, equipment purchases, etc., not to make a profit. THERE WILL BE A $10.00 CHARGE FOR PARENTS WHO ARRIVE AFTER 6 PM AND AN ADDITIONAL $5.00 EVERY 15 MINUTES THEREAFTER. (Late Fees must be paid the following business day.)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - NOT FOR TAX PURPOSES
Summer Youth Program (SYP) is not a day care operation nor is it an extension of the Community Missionary Baptist Church. Therefore, the Summer Youth Program does not have a tax identification number for income tax purposes. As a result, the SYP cannot give you a number for deduction on your income tax statement. Likewise, the associated fees cannot be considered a contribution because you are receiving services in return for the fees. Therefore, the SYP WILL NOT issue a contribution statement reflecting payments made.
However, the SYP will issue a receipt at the time of each payment. If you choose to submit that record to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a child-care deduction for tax purposes, please understand that the church will not be responsible for substantiating the expressed fee.
O.D. EPPS CLOSE FOR HOLIDAYS
SYP will be close on Monday, June 19, 2023 and Tuesday, July 4, 2023.
