Below is our anticipated schedule of activities. The group will have limited access to internet throughout the program. While we understand families are eager for news, we ask for patience as our staff’s energy is focused on the students and program. Please do not call our office regarding these blogs, as the office does not control the postings or the content of the updates. Thanks very much for your understanding!
