No School? No Problem.

When the Mason City Schools are closed for a scheduled break or due to weather, we have a solution for you. With group games, sporting activities, movies, swimming, and more, you'll have peace of mind knowing that you have a safe, fun place for your child to spend the day.

Our School's Out Fun Day camp occurs during the school year from 9am-5pm on selected holidays that the Mason City School District has a scheduled closing. Register in advance.

If you are looking for a solution to those days when Mason City Schools are closed due to inclement weather, bring your children to the Mason Community Center's Snow Day Camp from 9am-5pm. Registration becomes available whenever the schools announce a weather closing.
