Dear Community Education Participants,

Outdoor youth sports camps have begun! Camps have been modified for safety measures which you can read about below. Indoor youth sports camps will begin June 22. Indoor youth enrichment and swimming lessons, will begin the week of July 6.

Please don't hesitate to secure your child's spot! Classes and camps are modified to meet current safety protocols and may have limited space. With our updated cancellation and refund protocols, you can rest easy. 

Is the class or camp full and you're wondering if you should put your child on the waiting list? Absolutely! With restrictions for class sizes changing, you never know if we will have more spots open up at the last minute.

Questions? We are more than happy to answer them! Please give us a call at 651-425-6600 or email us at communityeducation@sowashco.org.

We can't wait to see you soon!

Dear Community Education Participants,

Along with Governor Walz's approval to move forward with running summer camps/classes, we have developed a set of protocols that our staff and camp/class instructors will follow for all outdoor camps and indoor camps

  UPDATED JUNE 9: indoor sports camps will begin June 22.

Please read about our new protocols (listed above) and if you wish to sign-up for summer registration, be sure that you and your child understand them and are willing to follow them. It is important for the health and safety of all participants, that these are adhered to.

You will be required to self-report your child’s health and temperature each day prior to camp/class beginning. This information will be logged daily. To ensure the safety of all participants, if your child has a temperature over 100 degrees, or has been exposed to someone who is ill, they should not be sent to camp. We ask that you let us know if your child or someone in your child's household has been exposed to COVID-19 or any illness so that we may take appropriate precautions to keep camps/classes safe for everyone involved.

If you have registered for a camp/class and decide not to send your child, please email us at CommunityEducation@sowashco.org and we will issue a credit to your account. 

Thank you for your continued support, 
Community Education

Dear Community,

In our efforts to continually bring you the utmost ease of registration as possible, we have modified our payment process for our Youth and Adult enrichment registrations.

Past registrations took payment for the class at the time of check-out. Moving forward, when you sign-up for an *enrichment class, you will only be billed should the class run.
 
A charge will be placed on your card one week prior to the class start date. Should the class need to cancel, you will be notified.

*This does not include Driver's Education.
 
Thank you for your continued loyalty to community and lifelong learning,
Community Education

    Dear Valued Community Member,

    In continued response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all enrichment classes and activities that fall between the dates of March 28 - May 3, 2020 have been cancelled. 

    We are in unprecedented times. With the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and the incredible speed at which things are changing around us, we are continually adapting our operations and business. At this time, we are working on crediting your account (pro-rated for classes or sessions that were already in session) for the enrichment class or activity that was cancelled. If a class or session extends beyond May 3, the entire session has been cancelled and accounts will be credited accordingly. 

    Thank you again for your continued patience as we work to process your accounts. We value your patronage and commitment to lifelong learning and look forward to seeing you in the future.

    We are providing distance learning whenever possible including Adult Basic Education and Early Learning.
