Youth Enrichment and Recreation

For the K-12 child in your family, youth programming offers activities to keep them engaged after school and opportunities to nurture their talents.  After school classes are hands-on and strictly fun ways to spark your child’s imagination.  Enrichment classes are a great way to learn something brand new or take an existing interest even further--all right in your child's school at the end of the day!  Look for Youth Enrichment opportunities in your child's Friday Folders, or click here or here for the complete lineup of current classes.
