Youth Development Programs

We offer a variety of different youth development programs in the Upper Elementary School. Take a look at our programs below!

  • Before and After School Care: This program is designed to keep kids safe, help working families, and improve academic achievement.
  • School’s Out Fun Days: We have childcare for kids during school in-services, early outs, school cancellations due to inclement weather, and most holidays.
  • Summer Day Camp: This camp is designed to offer opportunities for youth to explore new concepts with STEM and participate in service-learning projects. They will also have the opportunity to go on field trips and weekly trips to the aquatic center.
