    Temporary schooling or camps for kids

    I was wondering if there are any day camps or temporary schooling available for visiting kids? We are here for another 6 weeks minimum and kids are getting bored of us and I see that they want to spend time around other kids. Google only suggests ISA but it is way too expensive sending two kids there and I am not sure if they will even accept someone for 6-8 weeks. There are still a couple of activities we are planning to do with the kids but that will be over in a week. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Cheers

    you could check with the YMCA there.

    also too, it would not hurt to ask, but it may be worth the efforts............for a price $$.........maybe the kid's programs at resorts will make an exception.(probably not though)

    We are not sure where you are on the island. But we always pass a large daycare near reflections, it appears to be island ran, but we are grandparents so we don't know It has a lot of things to do in the yard that seems fun. When we walked past it on Sunday it did not appear to be open, so it might just been the day of the week. Otherwise a fun bouncy water slides past Surfside outdoor restaurant would have been a fun time for our kids when they were young. Enjoy your stay!
