What is an ACES day?
A snip of summer camp, our ACES days run during no school days. Each day is filled with a broad range of activities and interactive classes. ACES give your child a chance to build positive friendships while engaging in activities with our passionate KidSpirit staff. Whether your child is a budding artist, athlete, or scientist, we have a day of learning and fun ready for you!
When are ACES days?
ACES days are run when the Corvallis School District does not have school and when Oregon State University is still in session. See the dates for the 2019-2020 school year below! They run all day from 8:30am-4:30pm, with early and late care available for your convenience.
Campers must bring their own food. KidSpirit Reserves the right to cancel or combine classes that have not met the minimum participant requirement.
Check-In and Check-Out takes place in the backyard of Langton Hall. If you can't find us, don't stress! Just come to the Kidspirit Office in Langton 125. If you need to pick up a camper early, call the Kidspirit office ahead of time, and we'll be happy to have your child in the office waiting to check out!
When picking up a camper, you must be an authorized pick-up on the camper's registration and have a valid photo ID. If you have any questions about who is or isn't authorized to pick-up your child, please give the office a call.
