Camps and Before/After School Programs

Lightning Bolt BASE Program

Please review the PARENT eHANDBOOK for the complete details regarding Ben Franklin Academy’s Lightning Bolt Before/After School Enrichment (BASE) program.

BFA’s Lightning Bolt BASE program serves BFA children and parents by providing a safe, enriching, convenient, and affordable school-age childcare program. Our on-site program features indoor and outdoor activities that keep your child engaged and safe while giving them plenty of time to work on their homework. A perfect fit for working parents or parents who need additional time before or after school, BFA’s Lightning Bolt BASE program provides safe alternative for school-aged childcare.

The Lightning Bolt BASE program is staffed by BFA employees who have all been screened and undergone strict background checks through the State of Colorado. In addition, our program utilizes scanning technology for child check-in/check-out procedures to guarantee a safe and secure environment.

All BASE participants MUST have a current and complete APPLICATION on file in order to participate in the program. Applications must be completed annually. Applications and payment (please see below for payment and cost details) must be returned prior to first day of attendance.

If you have any questions, please contact Leigh Savoy, BASE Director, via her email or the Base Program email address.

Priced at only $7 per session, the BFA Lightning Bolt BASE program is more affordable than most childcare options in the marketplace. In addition, we offer a multiple child discount to families with more than one child. Each additional child will be charged just $4.50 per session.  There is a $25.00 registration fee per family that will be assessed once per year to cover general administrative costs.
