Program Details:


PROGRAM HOURS: 9 am - 3:30 pm

You may drop off anytime between 8:45 and 9 am and pick up between 3:30 pm and 3:45 pm.



While our regular programming runs from 9 am to 3:30 pm, we do offer extended care options for those with schedules that run longer than our program.  When you sign up for extended care, you can drop off as early as 7:30 am or pick up as late as 5:30 pm. 

Our flexible options allow you to choose AM or PM extended care by the day, so you are only paying for extended care when you need it.  Separating the extended hours from the program hours is a way to keep the cost down for you and help us manage our staff resources too!



Water bottle - labeled with child's name, to make sure your child stays hydrated.

Closed-Toed Shoes - that stay on and will keep your child's feet warm while outside. No flip-flops.

Warm Clothes - We will be going outside even if it is cloudy or raining, no matter the weather, please bring warm and waterproof jacket, hats and gloves.

Lunch & Snacks - We will not be providing lunch or snacks.  With a full day of activities all of our campers get hungry for a snack during the day.  Please pack enough food for your child to stay comfortable all day long.
