Looking for something for your child to do after school? Look no more! We are pleased to provide a unique 7 week long after school program for children in the Charleston area.
**If you have an older child who would be interested please send us an email. We are happy to put together a program if there is enough interest**
As of now we plan to meet on Tuesday (7-9yrs) and Thursday (10-12yrs) afternoons. Please select the appropriate day! As always, if you are interested in the program and cannot do that time slot please let us know.
Ask us about creating a program for your group! We regularly have events with older/younger children and would be happy to add another program to better meet your needs. Please note that we have a minimum of 6 children in order to start a new session.
What will we do?
Each week will have a different activity and topic. Some weeks are pure fun, like sand castle competitions and kayaking, some are more nature based and provide a hands on learning experience. Whatever the topic, we like to have a good mix of learning while we play!
