ExplorABILITY

First & third Sunday of every month, 9AM - 11AM

At ExplorABILITY, we encourage our players to explore, engage, and have fun in a safe, judgement-free setting. SCM is proud to foster an environment where families can share resources and advice with each other.

There is NO expectation on the part of the program organizers for your child to immediately engage or to participate in a specific way! This program is all about PLAY and our goal with the ExplorABILITY program is to HAVE FUN.


PLEASE NOTE: Because ExplorABILITY is so far without a sponsor for 2019, have shifted to a "Pay What You Can" admission model for this program. To that end, ExplorABILITY will operate on a donation basis - just pay what you can during your visits to ExplorABILITY to help us ensure that we can continue to offer every child a chance to play! Thank you for your support!
