Vacation Day Programs

Your child has off of school – now what? Bring them for a day of exciting learning and adventure at one of our Vacation Day programs! Offered during winter break, spring break, and other major vacation days that many area school districts have off, these programs are a perfect way to keep your child engaged on their days off!

All vacation day programs are drop-off programs appropriate for children ages 5-12 years. Please bring a sack lunch for all full-day programs! AM and PM snacks are provided. Scholarship funds available upon request.
