THREE sites are available, each supervised by an experienced teacher/adult. Counselors are college and high school students, many who have worked with the program in previous years, or who are studying childhood education.

 

Students are assigned to small groups (by grade completed during the 2017-2018 school year) with one counselor who has primary responsibility for his/her group. The grades are: Pre K, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th only. By design, the program is non-sequential. If a child does not attend for a few days, she/he will be able to participate upon returning. Most of the activities are completed within one day.

 

The Program includes water activities, large group games, board games, arts and crafts, Theme Days, and more. Most activities are held outside, but the gym and cafeteria will be utilized as well. The program operates RAIN or SHINE!
