NOTE: The Chocolate Chips Association will host 15 - 18 events for our Core Saturday Girls Program from September to May, and we are aware due to conflict in schedules, sickness and unexpected events, our girls will not be able to attend all events, BUT we ask parents to review the schedule once received, and if your daughter will not be able to attend at least 75% of CCA activites due to other already planed scheduled events, please do not register your daughter, as they will be taking a spot from a young girl that will be able to attend.
We host a few open events that girls can still participate with Chocolate Chips Association if they are not able to join the full program.
Thanks and we look forward to a GREAT S.T. E².A.M.™ year!
