This activity is very popular. There are always more sign-ups than there are places available. When you sign up, we will email you to let you know whether there is a spot available for you, or whether you are on the waiting list. Those on the waiting list, will have priority for following month’s session. Our goal is to allow as many kids to participate as possible. Please ensure that your child has a place before showing up for an activity.
