The foundation of our After School program is supervised, unstructured outdoor play that teaches kids how to have fun outside and how to play with others. Staff also plan days of special structured activities like cooking, archery, canoeing, sports, crafts, gardening and more .

The Chestnut Ridge After School Program is a safe, faith based environment where a child can enjoy natural fun and just be a kid.
