ST. JOHN’S LUTHERAN SCHOOL
COUGAR CAMP
OUR EXTENDED CARE PROGRAM

Cougar Camp will provide before and after school care from 7:00 - 7:45 am and 2:30 - 6:00 pm. The program is being offered to St. John’s students on regularly scheduled school days. Kinderkamp is our supplemental program for preschool students and is offered from 10:45 am to 2:30 pm.

After school activities will include physical activities either indoors or outdoors. Socially your child will have opportunities to develop relationships with other children his or her own age. We will have a quiet time so that your child will have an opportunity to complete homework assignments or be engaged in other quiet activities. A healthy snack is provided.
