Our Mission

Through our varied and flexible programming, we support and challenge the physical, social, and intellectual growth of each participant. Our academic activities including homework help and academic enrichment courses support the work children do during the school day. Our recreational activities are designed to foster sportsmanship, healthy competition, teamwork, cooperation, and fair play. All of our programs provide children with activities that promote healthy lifestyle choices and help decrease high risk behavior.
