Let your child unleash their creativity. The learning never stops just because it’s Summer! All sessions are free too!
Each week, volunteers of the Santa Elena History Center with Education backgrounds, will lead special children’s programs for ages 5-13. The programs include stories and enrichment activities in a kid-friendly environment where participants can also explore the many educational tools around the History Center.
Thanks to contributions to the Santa Elena Foundation, the costs of these programs are offset by generous community members. Participation is free, but pre-registration through the website is strongly recommended. All supplies are included.
