After-School and Online Class Programs

Please note that some of the topics listed will be slightly different in different facilities to accommodate scheduling and students/facility interests.  Please check the class descriptions on each registration website for the facility of your interest.  All themes can be modified for K-8th graders.

 

Due to coronavirus (COVID-19) current situation, we are currently having our classes ONLINE.  We are planning to offer our in-person programs as soon as it is safe to do so.  The online camp descriptions are similar to our in-person camp descriptions below, but the activities will be live demonstrations/instructions instead that students can follow during class.  We’ll send family with a simple supply list for them to gather at home and activities to print out, if any, before class, but not a requirement to have.

 

Please read our In-Person Class Protocol for Parents or Guardians to review how Bionerds will do an extra length to keep our students and teachers safe in class.
