Summer Program Season Delayed – Register Here

In light of Governor Pritzker’s extended stay at home order, the start of NSSRA’s summer program season is delayed to Monday, July 6. These program delays apply to NSSRA programs and the ELA Program. Our Summer 2020 Program Guide has been updated (view here) with program adjustments and cancellations. Updates regarding camps will be communicated the week of Monday, May 4. Please note: payments for summer programs are not required at this time and will not be processed. Any payments provided will be held until a later date.

In the meantime, we are excited to announce that we will have expanded virtual program offerings beginning this coming Monday (including weekend and evening options) and we hope you’ll join us on Zoom until we can be together in person again. Look for an email update coming later this week with sign up options for virtual programs.
