Summer Camp &

AfterSchool Program

This page is dedicated to providing information to parents in our After School and Summer Camp programs. During the Summer, this page includes photos of the fun the children have when they spend the day here at The Children's Center. During the School Year, we try to keep parents updated on things that are going on, special visitors and upcoming school holidays.

May: We have had visitors from Mississippi State who wrote an article about our AfterSchool program and used our pictures in the MSU literature. While here, they took lots of pictures of the children and classrooms. Photo credit goes to Alicia Barnes.

JUNE 6: The Summer Campers enjoyed a Wacky Wednesday activity today with the annual M & M Toss. Everyone is partnered with a friend and proceeds to toss M & M's into their partner's mouth. This is fun for everyone involved; video posted of the fun here:
