IMPORTANT NOTE TO PARENTS:

We have received additional registrations within the last two days that exceed our current staffing at our Character Builder sites to meet state licensing requirements. We are working on hiring and training additional Youth Leaders and are hopeful that within three weeks will be able to provide everyone a spot. If you have questions or would like to be placed on a waiting list, please email Vanessa Perez at [email protected]. — posted 8/26/16
