Our Summer Program is planned around weekly themes and filled with arts and crafts, exploring nature and science, storytelling, music, games, water play, playground play, and much more. Walking distance trips and field trips, as well as guest presenters, are organized. When possible, the Center coordinates with the Canton Recreation Department to participate in their swim lessons.
