Champions has a great solution for busy working families: activities that combine fun and learning, together with the safety and convenience of a high-quality program right inside your school. Champions offers a variety of group and individual activities designed to keep your child exploring and growing.

From art, dramatic play, math and science to problem-solving, language, motor skills and more, we help your child continue learning and developing essential life skills – whether school is in session or not.

We are open every day school is in session.

On early-release days we will offer half-days program (with a minimum enrollment needed) and you will need to bring a bagged lunch.
All full day off and break camp programs will be held at Stevenson Middle School

Please contact Area Manager Cassie Nickels at 734-776-8983.
