N4Cs will operate following our normal operating hours unless otherwise specified.  N4Cs reserves the right to alter operating hours, or temporary close the facility, as is deemed necessary by N4Cs Administration. Such operating hour changes or closings will only occur under certain situations including but not limited to: emergencies, extreme weather, safety or health concerns, utilities outages, or other extenuating circumstances.

N4Cs is closed on the following holidays:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Easter Sunday
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

Youth Program and Activity Cancellations

  • Most youth programs and activities will follow the Benton Area School District Calendar. Therefore, when the Benton Area School District cancels school due to extreme weather conditions, N4Cs youth programs will typically follow suit. However, please check N4Cs website and Facebook pages for all programming schedule changes as the adult classes do not always follow school cancellations. Cancellations of activities will be communicated via email and on our facebook page.

Extreme weather closings

  • In the case of extreme snow, ice, or rain/flood conditions, N4Cs may close. If a borough employee asks us to close, we will follow instructions. If roads are too dangerous for employees to arrive here safely, we will post about closings on the website and Facebook page.
