Our mission:  to promote the healthy growth and development of Payson children through an after school program.











  • 4H activities begin after spring break.  children ages 10-14 are eligible. The focus is STEM activities.​

​​​​Summer Activities

Our Summer Session Revised 2020 will start June 1st and will continue Mondays and Tuesday for the month of June, from 10:00 - 3:00. Please use our 213 Colcord Street parking lot. We are are going to have bags with crafts, books and snacks for our PCK KIDS.  When the bags are returned the following week, we will have another bag with more fun crafts and books.  We will be using Social Distancing.

After school activities are the heart of PCK as it serves the children in the Payson community.  Activities include  

free play, dance, Love On A Leash, board games, organized outside games, just to mention a few. Children get a snack on arrival and dinner before going home.

Payson Community Kids

Back-to-School Backpack program is for children enrolled in the PCK program.  At Christmas the children enjoy a party and receive presents.  

​​Why PCK matters

PCK began when Marcy Rogers discovered that children had no where to go after school.  What began as a group of just a few is now a full scale program serving an average of 90 children a day, sometimes more.  90% of the children who attend are from low income or working poor families.

In Payson there is no Y program, nor any Boys and Girls Club.  There is only PCK as a year round program at no cost to those who attend.  

PCK is truly a place for children to belong.  MORE

Who we serve

Many children are from families that face a variety of challenges:  single parent homes, a parent in prison, living with relatives, living in the domestic violence shelter, or homelessness to name a few.

This makes the services PCK provides even more crucial.  PCK serves as a place where children develop friendships, feel safe, encounter adults who nurture and care about them and engage in interesting and fun activities.  It is a program that helps children meet expectations of treating others kindly and striving to make good decisions.
