Monkey Tail Gang After School Program
At the Schuylkill Center, we believe that continued access to nature, in both structured and unstructured environments, can be as important to a child's growth and development as time spent in the classroom. Monkey Tail Gang children learn from and are enriched by the natural beauty of our 340 acres of woods, streams, ponds and meadows.
All program staff are highly-qualified professionals, and we maintain a staff to student ratio of 1:10 or lower.
A Day in the Monkey Tail Gang
When all of the students have gathered, the Monkey Tail Gang has a nutritional snack, and then they begin the day’s adventures. Daily outdoor activities may include hiking in the forest, exploring streams and ponds, searching for signs of wildlife, and canoeing.
These forms are required by the state and are mandatory for enrollment. Please mail or fax them to the Schuylkill Center, attn: Damien Ruffner. Address and fax number are at the bottom of the page.Register for Monkey Tail Gang with our secure online network via the orange button at the top of this page.
