Afternoon: 4 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
*Please note: Care is not available between the half-day Sprouts and Critters camps.

Nature doesn’t stop when it rains, and neither do we! Some of our best memories are shared during those unexpected moments. However, certain activities may be cancelled due to severe weather, and children will be sheltered inside if necessary.
