Access to the Teamsters Local 688 Health & Medical Camp
The Teamsters Local 688 Health & Medical Camp is a private facility owned by the Teamsters Local 688 Insurance and Welfare Fund for the benefit of Fund members. The City of Herculaneum is investigating the possibility of entering into an agreement with the Teamsters Local 688 Insurance and Welfare Fund to allow participating residents on a voluntary basis, access to the Teamsters Camp recreational facilities. These facilities include an 18-hole championship golf course, clubhouse restaurant, a spacious water park with an in-pool play structure, 1 meter diving boards and a 125 foot water slide, an 18 acre fishing lake, tent and RV camping overlooking the Mississippi River, picnic grounds and pavilions, and an overnight summer camp program for children.
The program requires a minimum number of households from the City of Herculaneum to enroll for the 2013 - 2014 season. In order for the City of Herculaneum to be able to offer this program, a minimum number of households must enroll in the program.
Participating Herculaneum resident households will be required to enroll for a term of one year beginning May 1st of each year and will automatically renew each year thereafter. A $25.00 monthly fee for access to the Teamsters Camp will be assessed to a participating resident’s city water/sewer bill. This fee will provide year round access to the facility for participating residents and their guests. There will be a one-time set up fee of $5.00 per membership.
If a Herculaneum resident wants to discontinue their enrollment as of the start of the next participating year, the Herculaneum resident must contact the Herculaneum City Hall prior to May 1st of that participating year. Herculaneum residents will not be eligible for refunds or pro-rated repayments if they decide to cancel enrollment after May 1st of a participating year.
Any Herculaneum resident, who discontinues enrollment at any time after May 1st of a participating year, will not be eligible to enroll the following year. A resident may not choose which months within a year to participate.
Residents wishing to enroll after the May 1st of any participating year are required to pay all monthly fees in arrears back to May 1st out of pocket. For example, a Herculaneum resident wishing to enroll July 1st must pay May-June fees out of pocket and up front.
If a Herculaneum resident wishes to enroll after May 1st of a participating year but was not eligible to enroll prior to that date, that resident may enroll without paying the enrollment fee for the previous months (May-June). For example, a resident moves into the city limits of Herculaneum after July 1st would not have to pay for the previous months.
In the event an enrolled Herculaneum resident moves out of the city or discontinues water/sewer service through the city during a participating year, that resident may continue to participate in the program for that year by paying the remaining monthly fees for that year out of pocket and up front, but will not be eligible to participate in any years thereafter.
