2020 Information

Summer 2020!
NEW: We are open on Fridays this year! All students entering 5th-8th grade are welcome to join us for an incredible adventure this summer. We look forward to great days filled with exciting events and activities to keep your heart pounding.  If you are trying to keep your finger on what’s hot in our community for youth…Check THE PULSE!

THE PULSE is designed to meet the needs of middle school students as they grow into responsible teens. At times, young people will be outside of the direct supervision of adults with clear expectations about appropriate boundaries and rules.  Abuse of rules, check-in times, and set parameters will result in loss of privileges. Attention to the needs of young teens and pre-teens will be given and, at times, different age groups will have different boundaries in terms of supervision.

THE PULSE families pick their days of attendance for the summer; calendar due by 5/27. Because of this, there are no allotted vacation requests after 5/27.
