• Adventures Plus summer care options

    During the summer months, Adventures Plus provides additional care opportunities for kindergarten, elementary and middle school students:

    • Adventures Bound: For students entering kindergarten
    • Adventures Plus: For students entering grades one - five
    • Peak Adventures: For students entering grades six - eight

    Adventures Bound

    Adventures Bound is a summer care option for families with children entering kindergarten in the fall. The program prepares incoming kindergarten students for Adventures Plus and the transition to the upcoming elementary school experience. The Adventures Bound curriculum was designed to support the development of kindergarten readiness skills, such as letter and number recognition, basic concept of print, group participation and social interaction.

    Adventures Plus

    Adventures Plus provides a safe, nurturing atmosphere for students entering grades one through five during the summer, emphasizing the development of social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills.

    Peak Adventures

    Peak Adventures is a safe and fun summer care program designed especially for pre-teen youth entering grades six through eight. Students can spend time hanging out and playing pool, foosball, air hockey or ping pong while listening to music. Experience the thrill of having an art studio stocked with paints, clay, drawing paper and other media. Peak provides a focus on healthy living and positive lifestyle choices. Students also have the opportunity to participate in up to two field trips each week. Past trips have included the Bunker Beach wave pool, Vertical Endeavors indoor rock climbing, Minnesota Twins baseball games and Valleyfair.
