Our Summer Program’s goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment while offering opportunities for personal and social growth, exploration, and fun for all children ages four to fifteen. We promote a relaxed, easy-going, and friendly place for students in our community and the public. We offer a full-day summer program from early June through August. You may register for individual weeks or multiple weeks at a time.

Summers at TDS give children the opportunity to learn a new craft or hobby, enhance and develop existing skills, travel to local places, and make new friends.

We are committed to maintaining staff who are talented, passionate, and experienced working with children. Our staff consists of experts, artists, and educators from TDS and other local schools and programs. We also strive to create partnerships with local businesses, universities, and programs that offer fun, exceptional, and creative opportunities for our students.

Our hope is that your child leaves TDS feeling happy and full of great memories. For questions regarding our Summer Program, please contact me with any questions.
