The Bear After-School Experience (BASE)

The Bear After-School Experience (BASE) is a child-centered environment focused on the development of social responsibility, intellectual curiosity, self-esteem, and discovery of new passions and affinities. We offer a diverse array of activities, from leading-edge experiential learning programs to athletic endeavors, art experiences and technological explorations. Every student can find something that interests them, broadens their horizons and helps identify passions that contribute to Dawson's goals of savoring life and striving for personal excellence. The BASE program is divided into two components: BASE Camp and BASE Enrichment.

  • BASE Camp

    A before- and after-school program that provides a warm, caring environment beyond school hours where children have the opportunity to play with school friends and get homework out of the way before the family sits down to dinner. BASE Camp offers exciting activities which stimulate children to be healthier and happier, including sports, art and computer exploration. BASE Camp utilizes age-appropriate materials and equipment for students. From the library to the playground, students spend out-of-school hours in safe and stimulating environments.
