Summer Program at Kids Can
Summer is a special time at Kids Can Community Center. Our summer program lasts the entire summer from school’s end in May to its start in August. Kids Can focuses on partnering our STEMsmart curriculum of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, Strength, Music, Arts, Reading and Tutoring with dynamic field trips. Weekly themes pair on-site learning with an average of three off-site field trips per week.
Available to school-age children, our state-licensed program is open from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM and includes breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. There is no extra charge for field trips, swimming or other activities. Program fees are $33 per day or $165 per week. Families are only charged for days your child(ren) attend. Child Care Subsidy (Title XX) payment is accepted, and some scholarships are available.
