Of course we can tailor the length and the style of the program to fit your needs.Once a Program is selected, we will gear it towards their specific age group and use age appropriate explanations and activities. Naturally, the smaller the group the more individual participation is possible, while we offer entertaining educational programs for larger groups as well.
