STaR Partnership -Science, Tech and Rec

Like last summer, over Spring Break we will be partnering with the Marshall University Rec Center Summer day camp. If you want/need full day child care, your child can spend the morning exercising their brains with us and the afternoon running around at the Rec Center. The Rec center has a separate fee for their program and all questions about their program should be direct to the Rec Center. If you sign up for this program, our staff will take our morning campers once their day with us is done and drop them off at noon at the Rec Center, where you can pick them up at the end of the day. After you register with us just contact the Rec Center front desk (call or drop in) and ask them about the STaR partnership (Science, Tech and Rec) and they will let your register for a half day with them (at their half-day rates). If you have questions about Rec Center portion of this program, please contact JoEllen Cornelius at 304-696-4107 or corneliusj@marshall.edu .
