Sessions will run on the same schedule as the adults with the same breaks for snacks and meals. All children are welcome. If children younger than 6 wish to participate, they need to have a parent or sitter with them. Children should report each day to the Elementary Age room. Faculty will be led by Lauren Lanning.
If a parent would like to volunteer to assist with any of the kids' activities, we would love the help! We do need volunteers to go along with the teens on their outtings.
