- Pay as You Go This membership is designed for members who’d like to access Kids Camp whenever they like and only pay for what is needed. Flat hourly, meal, sibling, and snack rates ensure there are no surprises. $12/hour, per child; $5 per additional child, per hour + meal cost, when your child is at Lodgic during a scheduled snack or meal time. Food is a fun learning tool, too!
- Flextime Members who know Lodgic Kids Camp is the answer they’ve been waiting for will want this membership package for ultimate value. Members may purchase hours in bulk, which are valid for an entire year; the more hours purchased, the better the rate. Rates as low as $8/hour, per child, with the purchase of 100 hours.
There is a $60 annual membership fee per family, and required membership enrollment paperwork for each child. The unique model allows for ongoing, open registration throughout the year, and provides on-demand, play-and-learn, licensed child care from 6:30 AM – 9 PM, Monday through Thursday, and until 10 PM on Fridays. Saturday hours are from 9 AM – 10 PM. Parents may utilize Lodgic Workplace, enjoy a date night at Everyday Kitchen, entertain clients at the bar, attend an on-site workshop or networking event, or leave the facility entirely to work or play.

About Moose International
Lodgic is an ambitious new concept to do more of what Moose International has been doing since 1888. The Moose has reimagined the timelessly good things the fraternal order has always stood for — working hard, taking care of each other, and having fun. In 2018, Champaign-Urbana will welcome the nation’s first Lodgic Everyday Community.
The Loyal Order of Moose is one of the world’s oldest and largest fraternal order and community service organizations. With one million members and over 1,500 Moose Centers and Lodges across the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, and Bermuda, it provides members with family-oriented social, dining, and sports activities. In local communities, members are known for volunteerism and community service. Nationally, the organization’smain endeavors include Mooseheart Child City and School, a residential community and school for children whose families are unable to care for them; Moosehaven, a Florida retirement community for senior members; and Tommy Moose, a national first-responder program for police and rescue to help children in acute crisis situations. Mooseheart Child City and School is one of the longest-operating children’s residential care facilities in America. Its beautiful rural campus spans 1,000 acres and has itsown ZIP code. Children receive the nurturing home, emotional development, and solid education they need to reach their full potential through the pioneering Mooseheart method of innovative and nationally recognized educational and family-living programs.
