The Educational Difference

Much like our after school program, our summer program will have a focus on education. In our efforts to curtail summer learning loss, certified teachers and paraprofessionals will assist our members in both language arts and math several days a week for grades 3-6. But don't worry, our curriculum won't feel like your child is doing a double-take of the school year. We have plenty of summer activities and hands-on learning experiences to keep your child entertained, while still challenging them to use their brain - even on summer vacation!

Teen Center

We understand that your Teen may not need a full day of programing so we are offering 3 options this year. 

1. Full Day Program: All programs during operating hours are accessible to your teen. Breakfast and lunch is provided with this option. Please fill out the entire registration packet.

2. AM Half Day: With previous parent communication and parent permission, your teen may choose to sign him/herself out at or after lunch. Please fill out the entire summer registration packet. The Full Day/Weekly price still applies.

3. Drop-in: Drop-in sessions will be approximately 2 hours long and cost $5, due upon arrival. An emergency medical form is required to be on file, but the full registration form is not required. Drop-in programs will include activities such as canoeing and biking, 3 on 3 Basketball tournaments, field trips, and much more. Please check our social media and website throughout the spring for a calendar of events.
