After-school programs at Onset Bay Center now open for registration

Sep 15, 2020

Looking for a fun, safe, outdoor after school program for your child? The Onset Bay Center is excited to offer a series of afternoon sessions focusing on our special Onset Bay. 

Each week, our staff will focus on a theme that will foster environmental awareness with developmentally appropriate outdoor exploration.

Each weekly session includes two afternoons per week from 3 PM to 5 PM for a total cost of $20/session. Scholarships spots are available. Priority is given to students from Onset, Wareham and Buzzards Bay village. For more information on scholarships and availability to children outside the immediate area, please contact Katherine Garofoli, at or by calling 508-999-6363 ext 227, to be placed on a waitlist.

The schedule is organized by grade level. Children in grades 3 through 5 will attend Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Children in grades 6 through 8 will attend Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
