The program runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the option of staying until 4 p.m. A half-day option is also available. The program is scheduled to run from Monday, June 26, to Friday, Aug. 18. The cost of the half day option is $40 a week, the 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. option will cost $90 per week, and the 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. cost is $110 a week.
