Single-day Rates are available!

The number of open single-day spots is based on overall program enrollment numbers and will only be offered in weeks that do not reach maximum capacity. 

When available, single-day registration will open two weeks in advance, and participants must be enrolled at least one week before the single day you request (i.e., by Wednesday, September 21, for participation on Wednesday, September 28). This ensures we can collect all necessary paperwork before the child's participation in our program. 

You can come into the ARC or call (MUST have a card on file - no payments will be taken over the phone) to register your child for any single day.
