What is EdVenture Club-Summer?
EdVenture Club-Summer is an exciting and engaging summer camp program for students who have completed Kindergarten through fifth grade by June 2020. EdVenture Club-Summer provides weekly mini-camps five days a week throughout the summer months and is conveniently located at: Prairie View and Otsego Elementary, Hassan & Rogers Elementary, Parker, Meadowvale & Twin Lakes Elementary and Westwood Elementary. EdVenture Club-Summer features both full-time and part-time options.
Full-time allows your child to attend our program five days a week from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Part-time allows you to plan your child’s care around your schedule. Youth will experience fun projects, hands-on learning and recreational activities while strengthening relationships in a structured, caring environment.
Why attend EdVenture Club-Summer full-time, 5 days a week?
EdVenture Club-Summer is an amazing experience for kids. Each week features a different mini-camp theme. Children benefit from ive days a week because they experience a fuller curriculum with hands-on experiences. They also have opportunities for connecting with friends, choice time and endless opportunities with our “activity boxes.” As a bonus, when you sign up for a full week the average daily rate is less than the part-time daily rate (more than six hours/day).
What is the benefit of using EdVenture Club-Summer part-time?
Using EdVenture Club-Summer part-time is a flexible option to meet a family’s needs and is built to fit around your schedule. You can choose 1-5 days per week and choose either under six hours or more than six hours a day (6am-6pm).
