Out-of-School Time (OST) Directors have the opportunity to re-charge in April of each year with a three-day retreat in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota!
Imagine waking up to a view of Mt. Rushmore and watching deer play just a few feet from your breakfast table. Take your coffee with as you move to the conference center to hear an amazing motivational speaker, participate in a stimulating focus group, and hear the latest in social and emotional learning. Cap off the day exchanging ideas with your fellow OST Directors around a camp fire! This is a realistic sample of the treat Directors have waiting for them each year in Keystone, SD.
Begun in 2003 by the Department of Child Care Services and organized for the last several years by SoDakSACA, this event has brought nationally respected trainers from across the United States to South Dakota. The South Dakota Afterschool Network is pleased to partner with SoDakSACA in bringing high quality training opportunities to Afterschool Directors in our state.
