KiDs Beach Club® redesigned its website over the summer and it can still be found at kidsbeachclub.org. It is vastly different than our old site and we think this new design better conveys who and where we are as an organization by telling the stories about our Beach Clubs, the kids who attend and the volunteers who serve.
With the redesigned website come two new features everyone should know about, including Find a Beach Club and online registration.
To find your child’s club, click either of the links to “Find a Club” in the main navigation menu at the top of the website or the orange “Register KiDs” tab in the upper right-hand corner of the site. That will open up a page with a map of the United States. You can use the interactive map by zooming in to find your club or you can click the name of your state below the map to bring up a list of school districts. From there, you can select the name of your child’s school.
That will bring up a page for your child’s Beach Club with information about meeting dates and times, location and information about the sponsoring church. At the bottom of the page, there is a “Register Today!” button with a direct link to the new online registration form. Just click it to register your child. You will have to fill out a separate form for each of your children who will attend Beach Club. The form is accessible a variety of ways, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and mobile devices and is optimized for the Google Chrome browser.
Be on the lookout for the new promotional club flyer that may come home with your child or be available at the school or the sponsoring church. You may even have it sent to you electronically from your school district through PeachJar or a comparable service. The flyer has information about the Beach Club at your child’s school and the direct URL to find your club’s page on our website.
In addition to those new features, users will see a focus on the ministry's four core values, the four Cs: Impacting Communities for the Kingdom; Sharing Christ in Public Schools; Fostering Life Change in the Hearts of Children and Connecting Families to a Church Family. And it's all presented right on the home page.
The website comes with other new features, including real-time reporting of the number of kids impacted by Beach Club, the numbers of volunteers who serve in Beach Club and the professions of faith made by Beach Club kids, both for the current school year and since the start of Beach Club in 2003. Also on display are the number of clubs, partnering churches and the all-time number of Bibles distributed.
Most of the information from the old site was adapted into the new site, which was designed in conjunction with Artistry Labs. It is presented entirely different and in an engaging way. We think you will find the site does a good job explaining who we are, what we do, where we are, when clubs meet and how to do a Beach Club. In fact, we answer all those questions under the "About" tab in the navigation bar.
We hope you like it and visit often to read and watch the countless stories and video about how KiDs Beach Club® is connecting kids to Christ and putting Bibles in their hands.
