Membership FAQ

Do I have to live in Palo Alto or Menlo Park to join PAMP?

PAMP welcomes both moms and dads from all over! Membership is open to anyone. Our club was started by moms from Palo Alto and Menlo Park 20 years ago (hence the name), but we have grown to encompass most of the Bay Area. And while majority of our activities occur on the southern Peninsula (Redwood City to Sunnyvale), our online presence is strong and active and can be accessed from anywhere - we even have members in New York and England! If your primary residence is more than 50 miles away from Palo Alto, you may be eligible for a reduced price "Out of Area" Membership.

What kinds of parents join PAMP?

PAMP members connect with a diverse community of parents ranging from their early twenties to their early fifties; families with one child or five; stay-at-home dads, working moms, single parents, and parents who shared life duties in a multitude of ways; all types of parenting styles, religious beliefs, political leanings, and personal aspirations. What we all have in common is an awareness that parenting is tough (incredibly rewarding too), and that it is much more fun and easier when done within a supportive community.
