Summer Adventure Club

Summer Adventure Club is offered, for your convenience, in conjunction with the Summer Exploration Experience (SEE). Summer Adventure Club functions as the SEE program’s before- and after-school program. Children must be enrolled in the district’s SEE program to attend Summer Adventure Club, which runs Monday-Friday from 7-8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.-6 p.m.

The Summer Adventure Club is considered an optional program for SEE students and you will have to complete the Summer Adventure Club application and pay the appropriate fees and tuition for your child to attend. Enrollment for Summer Adventure Club is for the entire duration of the SEE Program. Priority enrollment is provided to families currently participating in the Adventure Club Program. Enrollment is limited and children are placed based on the date the application and deposit are received.

Applicants interested in Summer Adventure Club who do not currently attend Adventure Club will be notified of their placement in May. The Summer Adventure Club program location will be the same as the SEE location. Adventure Club also offers an additional summer camp program the week after SEE for an additional fee. The hours for this program are 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Children who will be entering the grades of 1-6 are eligible for Summer Adventure Club. Children who have not yet entered kindergarten or have completed 6th grade are not eligible for Summer Adventure Club.

Summer Adventure Club will participate in field trips throughout the duration of the program. We commonly attend field trips on Fridays from 12:30-3 p.m. If your child is enrolled in the Celebrate Reading Program after SEE, his/her dismissal time will conflict with our field trip. Adventure Club and staff will not be on site when the Reading Program is released at 2:30 p.m. On Fridays, your family must choose for your child to either attend our field trip or, the Reading Program. If you choose the Reading Program,  your child must be picked up by 2:30 when the program ends.
