THANKS TO ALL THE SUPPORTERS WHO MADE OUR SUMMER PROGRAM A TOP FIVE SUMMER PROGRAM FOR 2019 IN COLORADO PARENT MAGAZINE!
The Summer Explorers Program has been designed for children of all ability levels, ages 6-12, to have fun, build friendships, and prevent summer learning loss. During the 6 week program, participants develop academic, social, and community safety skills while they have fun exploring their community and surrounding areas.
DAILY ACTIVITIES AND FIELD TRIPS
Our morning activities as well as our afternoon outings relate to our weekly themes. Morning academic activities include a mix of literacy and math, arts and crafts, STEM experiments, and practicing social skills.
Most outings stay in the Denver / Aurora area, while some outings will venture into nearby suburbs. Here's a list of past field trips:
Aurora Fox Theater
Museum of Outdoor Art
Wings over the Rockies
Nature and Science Museum
Sports Hall of Fame at Mile High
Hammond's Candy Factory
All of these outings provide opportunities for your child to build self-confidence while exploring their community with a qualified and licensed professional for true experiential learning. Our teacher to student ratio is 1:4, to maximize learning for all participants and to ensure each child is well supervised throughout the day. We practice specific skills such as social skills, money management, community safety, healthy eating, and much more!
