Many school districts are planning to return to school in the coming weeks. We are working closely with each to identify space and program needs. As details become clear for each district, we will send communications to currently enrolled families and post registration information for each district here

Summer Day Camp

February 5, 2021 Update - Registration will open on March 20 at 6:00am. We are actively planning and in conversations with our schools and parks partners about space and program possibilities, and consulting with state, county, and federal agencies about how to deliver a safe and high-quality experience this year. We may not be able to offer as many choices as in years past, but we remain steadfast in our commitment to support kids and families with great options, like Kids on Their Way, Outdoor Day Camp, and Discovery Camp. We hope to add more options, when possible.
