Before/After Care & Enrichments

On March 1, 2018, Portland Public Schools ended their relationship with Peachjar. To date, the district has not announced a new or alternative system of flyer distribution. Since so many of our families depended on Peachjar to learn about onsite after school and enrichment programming, we are listing programs as we know of them below. A private effort to create a comprehensive city-wide listing of programming is being created at

Please note that the programs listed below are provided to families as a resource, they are not endorsed or sponsored by the BCS PTA.

Daily Before and After Care through Camp Fire

Camp Fire Columbia is a non-profit organization contracted with Portland Public Schools to provide flexible before and after care at Fernwood for all grades. Before care begins as early as 7am, while after care is available until 6pm.  Click here for more information and to register online


PLEASE NOTE: As of March 13, PPS has suspended all before and after school clubs and classes for a minimum of 30 days. Campfire Before and After Care Programs will continue to be held on all days when school is session.
