Mitchell School Age Care enriches the lives of children by providing a safe, educational, care environment within the Mitchell community for school-age youth.

We offer weekly theme-based sessions with many activities to keep students wanting to come back for more! We fill these units with cooking, science, arts, crafts, sports, theater, club days, indoor and outdoor swimming, community service projects, special guests, mentoring, and much, much more!

Empowering You To Be!

It’s still all about choosing activities after school. EmBe will bring a variety of social skills, life skills, motivation skills, enrichment skills, and self-improvement activities, including arts, crafts, STEM, special guest speakers, gym enrichment activities, and more.

Aligned with the Mitchell Public school calendar, our day camps offer a fun-filled, supervised day for K-5th school-agers. EmBe provides a balanced program with time to play and learn with friends, and finish homework when school is out for holidays, on teacher in-service days, and on other school breaks. EmBe delivers what your child wants: enticing learning opportunities, engaging involvement, and unique experiences.
