We are in the process of upgrading our online registration software to include a mobile-friendly platform, easier household management and quicker activity searches. To do this, we needed to take the current system offline, and online registration is currently unavailable. You can learn more about this upgrade and the current status here. Facilities will remain open during normal operating hours and programs will occur as scheduled. Thank you for your patience and we apologize for any inconvenience.
