Parents’ Night Out
Parents, need a night out? Our certified Camp Apex staff is here for your childcare needs year-round. A fun night out isn’t just for the big kids ages 5-11 anymore. We now offer a separate program and space just for Minis ages 2-4 years old. Join us on the second Friday of each month at the Apex Center. The kids get an evening filled with crafts, dancing, and dinner is included, all while you get to have a night out to catch up on errands.

Leader In Training Summer Program
Calling all leaders, come work on your leadership skills with your peers in a safe, judgment-free environment. Each month-long program is designed for teens 13-15 years old who are interested in gaining a head start in building their working toolbox of professional skills. Leaders will participate in leadership activities such as bully prevention, public speaking, facilitation, and communication lessons. To enroll in the program, Leaders will need to complete an application and interview. Please contact Vee at ViolaD@ApexPRD.org for more information.
