1. It’s Fun!
Simply put – our kids genuinely like being here. We often hear children ask their parents if they can stay longer!
Our program was started in 1998 as a ministry of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church to serve working parents and their children of Campus School. We have used this experience to create an after school program that tends to the intellectual, social, emotional, moral, and physical needs of your child. Our program is comprised solely of Campus School students, creating a unique sense of community for our families.
We are open 3:00-6:00 p.m., Monday-Friday during the school year and provide transportation from Campus School and extracurricular activities.
Children in our care receive:
- An afternoon snack
- Homework assistance from teachers
- Ample recreation time
- Free play time to socialize
- The option of participating in organized games and activities
What We Offer
With less than a mile between St. Luke’s Challengers and Campus School, transportation is a breeze. We even pick your child up from extracurricular activities for a small fee – a service no other after school program offers.
Small Class Sizes
Each grade level has their own classroom, and with a staff to student ratio of 1:8, your child will receive individual attention and care while socializing in a small group setting.
Be the first to receive exclusive offers for special programming such as extracurricular activities at St. Luke’s and Parent’s Night Out events.
In addition to daily recreation, St. Luke’s Christian Life Center offers sports opportunities for children interested in basketball, t-ball, and soccer.
Camps during School Breaks
We provide dynamic camps that keep your child entertained and engaged over fall, spring, and summer breaks (winter break may also be available). During that time, we are open all day from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you chose not to take advantage of our camps, you will not be charged for these weeks.
