Due to higher summer demand, we ask that patrons limit their registration to one family, not necessarily their own. Telephone and early registration will not be accepted. Grades noted are grades entering in September 2017. Please remember that 3 ½ years old means the child must be at least 3 years and 6 months old. You must enter the requested information such as your child’s birth date, age or grade level in the “Note to Instructor” field or your registration will be invalidated.

BABYSITTING SERVICES: Teen volunteers will be available during August to look after your child during programs that include the parent but do not allow siblings.  Please let us know at the time of registration if you will need a sitter for a sibling.

STUDENTS ENTERING 6th GRADE: Don’t forget to check with the Young Adult Department for their Summer Program Booklet. They have additional programs that you may enjoy!
