  • Have opportunities to run around and let off some steam
  • Participate in daily enrichment activities (including music, dance, science, cooking and gardening, Spanish, and art)
  • Meet and get to know a fun and diverse group of students from many Hyde Park schools
  • Enjoy structured activity until 6:30 pm
