A team of dedicated, professional staff, with over 20 years combined service, welcomes on average hundreds of members each year with a daily average of 73 kids. Our programs and activities focus on the 5 core areas including The Arts, Education & Career Development, Character & Leadership Development, Health & Life Skills, and Sports, Fitness & Recreation. We supplement our programs and activities with field trips to local museums, hiking and biking trails, libraries and other family destinations.
