About Community Education


    Dear Friends!

    One of the highlights of my job is crossing paths with community members in a variety of settings throughout our great communities and sadly, we didn’t get a chance to do that this past year. It feels great to know that we have turned a corner with the pandemic and North Branch Area Community Education is excited for the release of our spring and summer brochure for 2021.

    The purpose of North Branch Area Community Education (NBACE) is to serve the residents of the North Branch Area Public Schools. We serve our communities and citizens by offering first-class experiences, creating amazing programming based on the needs of our citizens and developing meaningful partnerships that make our communities wonderful places to live, work and play.

    Youth Connections is our first-class childcare program for students ages 3 through 6th grade. Our friendly staff provides wonderful care for your child while meeting their social and emotional needs in a fun and safe environment. Youth Connections has an amazing summer planned with great activities and to keep your student engaged all summer long. For more information on our first-class Youth Connections program check out page 18.

    Our summer brochure is filled with amazing programming for citizens of all ages. Our programming highlights include youth sports camps and clinics, drivers education, swim lessons, adult enrichment, youth theater class, youth enrichment classes, and gymnastics. Detailed information on our amazing programming is found throughout the brochure.

    Summers in our region is filled with great partnerships between our communities and local businesses through our many fairs and festivals. While each celebration is unique, they all provide a great opportunity to make countless family memories. These memories are only made possible through the generous support from our local and regional businesses. For more information on our memory-making fairs and festivals, including Concerts in the Park, please check out pages 4 and 5.

    Whether it’s on a field trip for Youth Connections, a sports camp, or at a community celebration, North Branch Area Community Education looks forward to spending the spring and summer with you!

    Don’t forget the sunscreen!
