The Summer Fun Arts and Crafts Program is a Kirkwood – Conklin joint program designed for children in Kindergarten – 12 years of age. The children are able to work on a variety of projects that will be pre-determined by the instructors. They will also have a designated time outside (weather permitting) to play games or use the playground if desired. Children are asked to bring a bagged lunch. The program runs Monday – Thursday from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM at Floyd Bell Elementary School in Kirkwood.
