Participants enjoy a full schedule of on-site activities including games, arts and crafts and many trips. Registration fee does not include trips. Step Out is a drop-in recreation program. Participants are required to time themselves in upon arrival and time themselves out when they depart. Registered participants that arrive via shuttle bus should depart by shuttle at the end of the program day; no participant that rides the shuttle should depart the site walking unless site staff is notified. Once signed out, a participant must immediately leave the school campus, and those signed out are not permitted to return on the same day. Parents may check with site staff regarding special leave/return situations. It’s important that parents give participants a clear message regarding permission to leave the site prior to the end of a day’s program; again, this is a drop-in program.
