They will learn bicycle safety and their bikes will also receive a mechanical check-up. The registration fee is only $10 and includes a bicycle helmet.

Adventures in Science

First through third graders become young scientists as they perform experiments and participate in activities designed to peak their curiosity and stimulate their interest in science. Kids will be astounded by how fun science can be!

French for Kids

Numerous studies have shown that introducing kids to another language at an early age increases test scores and thinking skills. Fourth graders and up will be introduced to all things French with a fun, hands-on approach! Language, food, fun and games all in French!


Fun and fitness for kids ages 6 and up all at the same time! This fusion of the Zumba program’s moves is a safe and effective way for kids to get moving. Watch your child’s energy and fitness level soar!
