After Care Programs
Most of our day camps are scheduled from 9:00am-12:30pm, but we know some families need all day care. Our After Care program takes over after the pick-up time (12:30-1:00pm) and runs from 1:00-5:00pm daily. During the week of After Care, we’ll do things like play games, make crafts, and take trips to local parks.
Cost for After Care is $100/week and includes everything. Children from all camps are welcome to sign up for after care.
To register for After Care, select the camp with After Care option on the registration page. Please note the following for After Care:
 
-An afternoon snack will be provided—please do NOT send money for candy or soda machines as we do not allow children to use these machines during the day.
 
-After Care may take some neighborhood field trips—for ice cream or to a local splashground. If you need to pick your child up before 4pm, please let adult leaders know at drop-off.
 
-Children will need a bathing suit and towel on some days—each week, leaders will post the days children will need to bring these items in order to play on our water slide or go to the splashground.
 
-In order to make After Care possible, we require that families sign up for an entire week. If there is room available, parents may sign children up for a single day of After Care on site—cost for one day is $30.
 
-In order to cover the costs of our After Care program, we must have at least six (6) children signed up one week prior to the start of camp. If we do not have six children signed up, we will cancel After Care for that week. You will be contacted by email if you signed up for After Care and it is canceled.
