Rising Eagles

Please Note: We will make EVERY effort to honor the themes listed below this summer; however, if we have learned anything this year, it is that flexibility is the key to success! Should a theme become difficult to execute well due to Covid-19 safety restrictions or unforeseen staffing changes, we reserve the right to alter the themes below in order to create the best-quality (and most fun) program for your child.


Special announcement: We encourage families to join the waiting list as we will be reaching out to those families first when spots become available.
