After-School Programs

During the academic year, CISF is proud to offer after-school programs for all students in grades K – 8! Students can sail, kayak, explore, and learn about our natural world in a variety of after-school programs.

Fall Programs

September 25th Vacation Day Program (Yom Kippur), Grades 2 – 6
Join us for an afternoon outdoors exploring and playing! Children in grades 2-6 are invited to participate in this vacation day program from 12 pm – 3 pm. Children will explore the saltmarsh and play games once the tide is too high to continue exploring. Bring a snack and water. Dress in layers as it is always colder at Fort Getty. $40/child. (For those in  after-school sailing and backyard explorers, those programs WILL run on Monday.)
