Evening Programs

Evening programs run from after dinner (6:30 p.m.) until snack time (approximately 8:00 p.m.) They are designed for the whole group to participate in. When smaller groups are desired the group can be split into smaller sub-groups.  If you wish to have a specific night program designed to meet the needs of your students please contact us and we can work together on an innovative solution.  Please scroll down to read our night time options.
