No need to park. We're happy to meet you outside. Please let us know if you would like to pick up or drop off your child in front of our store.

If you’d like to stay downtown during camp, there is a parking garage directly behind us (the Marbles garage) and street parking.

Safety and Wellness

We take very seriously the safety and security of each child. Upon registration, we will email you a child information sheet outlining our wellness and behavior guidelines that must be returned before starting camp.

Children will remain on-site with their teacher at all times unless we otherwise receive permission for a field trip. Parents will be given the direct phone and text contact information for emergency purposes.
