After much discussion and review, it has been decided that the BLOCK’s physical location will remain closed through the end of 2020. The safety of your children and our staff has, and will always remain our top priority. This decision has been made in order to serve a larger group of teens safely, through virtual and small-group physically distanced programming held outdoors.
BLOCK & Beyond will launch September 21st as a membership option, which will offer families a variety of fun, safe, and physically-distanced program options in exclusively outdoor and virtual formats. There will be no transportation offered during session 1. If internet access will be a roadblock to your participation, please let us know! Visit the BLOCK & BEYOND TAB BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION.
