Our low-cost (some are free!) after school programs and one-week summer camps explore topics in greater detail than our one-day workshops. We hold co-ed or girls only camps. After school programs meet once a week for 1-2 hours. Summer camps meet daily for 3-4 hours. Snacks are provided for summer camps only.
