 Hello friends,

This year, we won't be offering the Summer Safari program as we have in the past.
We are working with the Strand Center for the Arts in downtown Plattsburgh, and they will be hosting a wonderful range of arts classes for all ages throughout the summer.
Some of our Summer Safari instructors are already teaching there!
The Strand will be adding more summer classes. You can contact them for more information:

At SUNY Plattsburgh, we will be offering technology classes in Minecraft exploration and digital design with instructor Dean Delano the last three weeks of July.
Look for that schedule and registration soon.
Thank you!
