During this time of distance learning, Adventure Connection has been called on to provide the essential service of childcare for children of eligible healthcare and emergency workers.

Adventure Connection families are not billed for the days we are closed.

We will follow CDC and MDH guidelines to ensure the safety of students and staff. Group sizes will be smaller. Activities may be modified. What won't change is the safe, convenient, welcoming environment we've always provided.
