Community Ed is back for summer 2021, with a full menu of programs that help keep kids safe and engaged while meeting the needs of busy families. Our programs nurture a love of learning, support academic achievement and develop skills in technology, the arts, sports, and more! We’re educational, but also fun and social, building community and connections while we practice communication, collaboration and teamwork. Our many youth leadership opportunities help older students gain real-world experience as they explore college, career and life. 

KIDS Club/WISE Guys School Age Care
With KIDS Club/WISE Guys, your child can look forward to a fun, social summer, and you can relax knowing your child will be safe, happy and engaged.

COVID-19 Safety

While we don’t know all the health and safety guidance details for summer just yet, what we do know is this: we will pair the expertise we’ve gained in safely running care and enrichment programs all year, with what we know kids and families want and need. 

All programs will incorporate the most current COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. We will continue to monitor all Minnesota Department of Health guidelines and executive orders from the Governor’s Office, and will adjust our practices as the pandemic situation evolves.
