Looking for an after school program that is different from all the rest?
Where can I find an after-school program near me? We are an after school program where kids are physically active rather than using screens and electronic devices. At the after school Ed-Venture Kids Center at Spirals, kids get to jump on trampolines, practice gymnastics skills, play outside, and participate in team challenges and group activities. Healthy snacks are furnished daily along with homework assistance. Students are supervised at all times by our professional staff in our state-licensed programs.
“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.” - John F Kennedy
In the 1960s and 1970s only 13 percent of U.S. adults and 5 to 7 percent of U.S. children were obese. Today those figures have risen to 34 percent for adults and 15 to 20 percent for children. 70 to 80 percent of obese children remain obese as adults and obese adults (BMI>30) have a 13 year shorter life expectancy than those with the optimal BMI.
Founded in 1982 and now in our 39th year, Spirals is built around a passion for seeing chidren succeed in sport and life. The US Physical Activity Guidelines recommend that children should have 60 minutes or more of physical activity per day. However, today's sedentary, screen-based lifestyle means very few actually achieve this.
Exercise brings rewards in self-esteem, confidence and mental and physical ability. Children naturally build strength, stamina and resolve when they run, jump and play. Spirals' goal is to help all our students achieve basic healthy goals and to do so through an active and fun curriculum.

"Spirals has been a amazing place for our 6 year old daughter. We first attend the summer camp and my daughter has loved every minute spent there. Spirals staff was/is so wonderful. From there we started her in the aftercare program, which in turn has been nothing but wonderful. Take it from, me with the job that I do it's hard to find good people to look after your child as if they are their own. At spirals that is what you get..love love this place!!!"

"My son has been attending the after-school program and summer camp for the past 4 years. I could not be happier with the level of care my child has received. During the summer, the kids work towards goals in order to receive ribbons and trophies at the end of the week. This is such a valuable lesson to teach our young kiddos!! We love the staff and camp counselors!!"
