SUMMER PROGRAM ACTIVITIES
Our summer program will combine enriching learning opportunities, educational field trips – and, of course, plenty of summer fun! We have a diverse curriculum targeted for each age level, from Kindergarten through 12th grade. Programs include*:
- Hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) activities
- Summer reading clubs
- Summer Brain Gain—a fun, hands-on, project-based learning program that fosters creativity, problem-solving skills, and keeps kids’ brains sharp during the summer months!
- Character development programs
- Daily physical fitness
- Arts & Crafts
- FUN field trips (swimming, skating, bowling, movies, etc.)
- Educational field trips (creek sampling with General Motors, Rippavilla, Lucky Ladd Farms, etc.),
- Unique learning experiences via our community partners, such as dance, karate, soccer, and more!
Older youth also receive programming that helps prepare them for careers and future success, such as financial literacy classes, resume writing, mock interview preparation, college/career coaching, and more. We utilize partnerships with a wide range of local businesses to enhance program offerings– for instance, engineers from General Motors and the TN Environmental Council conduct an exciting annual hands-on creek sampling and water testing activity with our youth. All of our programs are designed to help prevent summer learning loss by keeping youth engaged in fun, educational and enriching activities during the summer.
*This is a sampling of the types of activities offered and is not intended to be a comprehensive list. Exact field trips and experiences will vary by location, based on the unique partnerships established in each community. However, the summer program at all locations will include these types of activities.
