The After Three Program is a program that includes art, dance, film and music (possibly science). The instructors during this period are younger and more attune to the whims and exploration of the campers. It is during this period that students are given the opportunity to experiment and develop their own program as they jump from one concentration to another in what I like to describe as “collaborative mayhem”.
