Learn, play, meet new friends, and have fun!

Summer Fun is a chance for children to spend their days exploring new ideas through songs, crafts, and games.

Our English-speaking environment supports our regular Joy Members and is an excellent chance for children with no experience to join the fun.

We want summer to be a great memory for every child, so please be sure to sign-up and join the fun.

Enjoy games, water play at the park, crafts and more!
