After-School Care

For the 2023-2024 School year, Citizens of the World Charter School will partner with Camp Fire Heartland to run after-school programming.

Camp Fire Heartland has provided after-school programming throughout Kansas City for several years and have partnered with CWCKC for the past two years providing mentoring to students during the school day.

Camp Fire Heartland’s after-school program will focus on:

Social/Emotional Learning
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math)
Finding our “sparks”
Nature and the Outdoors

Care is available until 6 pm every day. A snack and a hot dinner will be provided daily.


The cost for the Camp Fire after-school program is $210 per student every month. Many scholarships are available, and you can apply through the Camp Fire Heartland Scholarship Application.

After-School Clubs

Clubs provide an opportunity to extend learning from the school day for children. They are 10-week sessions run each semester in topics and activities that include sports, crafts, games, and other fun learning activities. Clubs are cost $100 per student per club, and limited scholarships are available for families who qualify for Free & Reduced Lunch. This cost is in addition to Camp Fire fees for those who participate. Registration and payment is handled through the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. Some clubs fill up quickly, so please act quickly to get the choices of activities and days that will work for your family.
