Charles County, MD --  With a new school year just around the corner, the Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism is waiving the usual $24 enrollment fee for their Beyond the Bell after school program.

Beyond the Bell is an after-school program for middle-school-aged students that offers a safe space for doing homework and making friends as well as the chance to work on educational STEM projects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and fun physical activities.

The staff works to encourage participants to become creative and innovative thinkers. The $25 enrollment fee will be waived for kids registered in August and September, as long as the parent or guardian has a valid RecPASS.
