Summer Enrichment 2021

This school year was…well…crazy. It started out crazy, was crazy in the middle, and it ended crazy. But right now, that doesn’t matter. What matters is – you finally made it to that glorious light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s putting off some serious rays. In fact, you’re going to need shades for a couple months. Not just for the rays, but because you deserve to chill. And throw on that party hat too, because it’s time to celebrate. Drop your kids off at Summer Enrichment and we’ll help keep them on track with their learning through fun activities. Then you can just throw on your shades, kick back, and enter the chill zone. We got you.

Highly-Trained Staff

Children who use our before- and after-school programs will see some familiar faces. Many summer staff members are current AYS program staff members and some have joined our team for the summer. AYS hires individuals to work at our programs who have experience and a passion for kids and enjoy being outdoors. All AYS staff members go through a drug test, TB test, and several criminal background checks. Staff has also been trained in health and safety protocols related the COVID-19 crisis. AYS staff members also receive training in First Aid, child development, conflict resolution, team building, and overall safety to ensure that your child has a great summer experience. Staff/child ratios are low to allow for a variety of small group activities. CPR-certified staff members are always on site.

AYS reserves the right to cancel any program if minimum enrollment is not reached.
AYS will begin a waitlist for any program that reaches capacity.
