Staycation is a school vacation program open to grades 1st-7th. We offer full day care with activities to keep your youngster happy and active with art, games, outside time, reading, and free time. There are some opportunities for field trips which are only scheduled when there are 2 or more days back to back of program/school closed. However, no trips during the Holiday break in December. Unfortunately, the option to leave youth behind who do not wish to participate is not possible. Efforts will be made to post field trips that have been secured for specific dates here on our website.
The register by dates give us the necessary time to secure the appropriate space for the program, staff, supplies and in field trip cases, entry costs and buses (no additional fee for families). In some cases, we might be able to accommodate you last minute-but this will be a day to day determination.
