KidSpirit ACES Program


Activities Create Excitement on No-School Days


What is ACES?

No-school days at KidSpirit will give your child a fun, safe place to learn and grow. Whether your child is a budding artist, athlete, chef, or scientist, they will learn through play. KidSpirit offers a range of activities to inspire your kids from bowling, basketball, and gymnastics, to cooking, arts & crafts, on-campus field trips, and much more! Your child will have a chance to socialize and learn with children their own age, giving them a chance to make lasting friends. The KidSpirit staff is made up of college students who have followed their own passions. Whether your child needs an artist or an athlete, a cook or scientist, there will be a staff member that can help and mentor them. Send your kids to spend the day at KidSpirit to learn, grow, create lasting friendships, and most importantly, have FUN!!!
