Students off on school
vacation days have a place they can go to gather
with friends and respected staff. Many afterschool
and summer camp staff return to join the fun and
acquaint themselves with their young buddies.
For the working family, ACT offers an exciting alternative
to having a child stay home with little to do during
the school recess. For all children, we offer new
friends and a place to get awat from
school and home. Join us for a fascinating and fun
time at Vacation camp. Enroll for one or all days.
Extended hours: as early as 8:00 am to as late as
Money Order/check payment is required if registering five
days or less prior to a holiday.
