Students may choose between three activity programs. The activity program options are shown below. Students may pick up to one afternoon activity program per week. Students have the option to choose a new calendar each week (with at least one-week notice and changes are subject to availability). We advise students to select and inform us of their activity calendar preference pre-arrival to ensure availability in their preferred activity program. Students are never guaranteed their first choice, but we do try to honor all of our student’s requests.
