New programs were also announced aimed to suit all ages.

Middle and high School students can choose from programs such as Project Runway, a design and fashion program; Debate Club; Junior Crossfit; Masterchef, teaching skills in cooking and nutrition, or simply have fun with friends in a specialized teen room where every Friday there is a movie night.

For elementary school ages, there are Lego programs, drama classes, arts and crafts, an indoor hockey league, cooking and story time.

Director of Operations and Programming, Kelly Garrity said, “our goal is to provide fun and exciting activities for our members that provide them with education and life skills without making it feel like work.
