Our clubs are after school activities that focus on specific topics. Some clubs focus on drawing, others are all about using Youtube in fun ways, and there are few focused around gaming! Regardless of the topic, each club participant will learn various skills in different ways. All are focused on creating a social, collaborative experience, and can be a great way to unwind after school.

General F.A.Q

What are the age recommendations?

Generally we recommend attendees be at least 7 years of age. Some clubs will have a slightly older age limit, so make sure to double check with the specific club!

What activities are done in the clubs?

While each club will undergo different activities, they will adapt to the interest of the attendees. For example, the art explorers club focuses on drawing and trying new art styles. One day we may look at a particular artist, or do an art challenge using only 2 colors. Meanwhile the storytellers club may look at sections of a movie, or run a creative writing exercise. Every club will be different, but they will run fun activities that change on a regular basis. It is all about exploring and trying new things! 

If you want to get a better idea of the specific activities, you can take a look at the individual club websites, or you can contact the club coordinators! Here is their contact info:

What do I need for the clubs?

Currently all of the clubs run online. Every participant will require a device capable of using google meet, headphones, and a webcam. Please note that every club is going to have a slightly different set of requirements. Generally we do our best to work with whatever technology is available to you. So if you don’t have a high end PC with the latest specs, don’t stress too much. We can make it work! Double check what each club recommends on their sites and follow up if you have questions!

We have plans to transition our clubs into an in-person format in late spring. So make sure to come back for updates!

How many kids can attend a club at one time?

Due to the flexible nature of the clubs, we can currently operate with a maximum of 8 attendees at a time. The only exception is the D&D club which can operate with a maximum of 6 attendees. 

How does the schedule work?

Every club runs during a different day of the week from 3:30pm – 5:00pm. Here is a quick breakdown of the different clubs:

Monday – Storytellers | Tuesday – Game Enthusiasts | Wednesday – Minecraft Builders  | Thursday – Youtube Creators | Friday – Art Explorers

The schedule will remain consistent from week to week. Please note the D&D club operates on a different schedule from Wednesday to Saturday.

How does pricing work?

Pricing reflects the cost of a single ticket. To attend a club, each participant must purchase a ticket for the session they wish to attend. When signing up, you will be presented with a calendar view that will allow you to purchase individual tickets, or a batch of tickets at one time. Simply click the sign up buttons at the top of the page, and you will be taken to the appropriate register page.

I need help using your sign up page!

No problem!

Here is a quick video that goes over purchasing a single ticket: https://youtu.be/9ZaU2Fz0-NE

What happens if I can't make a session?

If you were previously signed up for a club, but a conflict popped up last minute, it is not a problem. Just let us know and we can transfer your ticket to another day. 

Please note that the D&D club has seating requirments and cancellations work a bit differently. Please check out the D&D club FAQ for details:https://sites.google.com/thedae.com/daedndclub/f-a-q-help?authuser=0

Can I switch clubs?

For the general clubs – you can request to switch your ticket. We only ask for 24 hours advanced notice to process your request. Just reach out to Nick via nick@thedae.com and get in touch.

I can't purchase tickets for a specific day. What does that mean?

Generally this means that the session is full. You will have to purchase tickets for a different day. In rarer cases, club meetings will be suspended for holidays or special programs. Double check the “Club News Section” for any updates regarding schedule changes. 

Do you capture images for advertising?

Yes, we do capture images and sound for the purposes of advertising; however, you can opt out of advertisements.  During the sign up process there is a form that will inquire about your comfort regarding advertisements. If you would prefer to have us avoid using your childs image in advertisements, just select “no” and we will take care of the rest.
