School's Out, Get Outside!

Program for Children in Grades K-5


When school is not in session, students can spend a day at Briar Bush exploring the outdoors, meeting live animals, making crafts, playing in nature, and more. Be sure to pack a lunch, snacks, water bottle, and full change of clothes.


In January and February, due to construction at BBNC, School's Out will take place at Crestmont Clubhouse at 2595 Rubicam Avenue, Willow Grove, PA 19090.

After Care will not be offered.

Due to uncertainty in the construction timeline, the School's Out programs in March and April may also take place at Crestmont Clubhouse.
