Summer Offerings for K-8
Kids’ Corner offers multiple exciting programs during the summer, including our regular Kids’ Corner Summer Program (K-5), and KC Xtreme for Middle School students (completed grades 6-8), with the final week also open to rising 6th graders.
All of Kids’ Corner’s summer programs uphold the same safe, engaging, caring and values-driven environment, coupled with a fun-loving, learning-filled atmosphere that has been central to the Kids’ Corner After School Program for over 30 years.
The Kids’ Corner summer offerings are OPEN TO ALL FAMILIES in the community. Initial priority is given to currently enrolled after school families who can register exclusively from January 15th through February 13th. Non Kids’ Corner families can also register beginning on January 15th but will be considered “wait listed” until open enrollment begins on February 15th. At that time, all “wait listed” registrations on file will be processed in the order they were received prior to the official start of open enrollment on February 15th @ 12pm.
KC Xtreme for Middle Schoolers
This adventure-based program is geared to meet the unique needs of Middle School students. Middle Schoolers will participate in challenging adventures that foster self-esteem and support a growing desire for independence, with professional, supportive adult staff. To give our soon-to-be Middle Schoolers a sneak peek at the fun, Week 4 is open to students who have completed the 5th grade. KC Xtreme is run by one of our school year lead teachers and nature enthusiast, Lauren Bagley, and promises to be a fun time. Grab your friends and come along for the day-tripping ride of your life.
Contact KC X Director, Lauren Bagley at [email protected] with any questions regarding the KC Extreme program.

June Vacation Week Program
Occasionally, Kids’ Corner runs a full-day program in June, for 3 to 5 days, to provide a bridge between the last day of school and our Summer Program. The schedule will vary depending on the school calendar, and how many inclement weather days have been utilized. Registration will open approximately one month in advance and can be found under the Registration header on our website.
