We offer two separate 5-day per week sessions for children 9-17. Our sessions run from June 21 through August 27, covering a total of ten weeks to choose from.
- Monday-Friday morning, 9:00 AM – 12:00 NOON

You can book only one (1) student at a time due to our need for waiver/medical/insurance information on each individual student. If you wish to register more than one student, please use multiple checkouts. Do not change quantity to more than 1 per session.
Select your desired week(s) and session(s) (morning or afternoon) from the pulldown menu below. This ensures you are selecting the precise week you want. Class size is limited. If you wish to enroll in both sessions in the same week, book each session separately before checking out.
Each session is $275 for the week. For combined sessions (morning and afternoon), the cost is $550 per week. There is no discount applied for multiple sessions.
