Summer Program Options 

All Kidstop, Cosmic Club, and SPOT sites provide an awesome variety of activities that encourage creativity, collaboration, exploration, health, fitness, and nutrition.

  • Kidstop (Grades K-3): Programming geared for some of our younger learners.  Activities are more structured and focus on many fun and different themes.  These include science, math, technology, art, music, and more!
  • Cosmic Club (Grades 4-5): Begins to provide students in these age groups with more opportunities to practice their growing independence, with a particular emphasis on service learning and community service.  All of the fun experiences of Kidstop take place in this group but are reimaged to meet the needs of this age of students.
  • The Spot (Grades 6-8): A place for older youth to not only hang out and make new friends but a program that is truly designed by youth for youth.  Our staff place a heavy emphasis on leadership development with program participants who develop/assist in developing field trips, activities, service opportunities and more!

Kidstop, Cosmic Club, and The SPOT reserve the right to cancel, reschedule, or adjust a program field trip location, date, or time. This adjustment could be due to weather, facility location, or program decision. If a cancellation or adjustment does occur on a day your child/children are scheduled to attend, families will not be allowed to switch days or have your account credited due to this change.
