    We offer programs that apply to children of all ages. Some programs, like the after-school programs, are for children of the age to attend that school. For instance, the K-2 Activity Clubs are for children in Kindergarten through second grade. Drama Lite and Wonders of Our World are taught at the Intermediate School and are intended for children in grades 3 through 5. Please note that homeschooled children are ALWAYS welcome at classes appropriate to their age or grade.

    Evening programs, and weekend programs may be offered for specific age-groups or may be open enrollment, depending on the class. For instance, the craft classes are geared to children with skills typical to a specific age group. If you have a child who you think can handle the projects in a more advanced class, please call for more information. Outdoor Pursuits programs are very family friendly and are geared to children as well as adults – we just ask that children under 10 be accompanied by a parent.
