All workshops have openings for ten participants. At least four participants are needed to run the camp. First-come, first-served! Pre-registration is required and due at least two weeks prior to class.
Enrichment classes are for children who have a passion for learning and who truly want to be there. Having to handle behavior problems is very disruptive and takes away from those who really want to enjoy the class.
Please feel free to call for details or inquire about other workshops, dates or times. Future workshops can be designed as requested and are often designed around specific requests. Do you home-school? Inquire about classes you’d like to have your child attend during the school day.
Pricing includes all materials unless otherwise specified. Dress for mess ;) Once you have spent $100 on classes this summer, you get a free T-shirt. They are also available for $10.00. Scroll to bottom for registration.
