It is true that idle hands or minds can lead to trouble, but even more importantly, idle minds can result in a decrease in educational attainment. Studies have indicated that a child that does no academics over the summer will take until Halloween to be back at their pre-summer level. Here at the Club we do an hour of 'Brain Gain' every day of the summer. Simple, fun but educational activities that focus on reading and math. Doing Brain Gain ensures that our members retain all their learning from the prior school year and start the new year ready for the next level.
It may feel like winter just started but we are only 3 months away from the summer vacation. As in prior years we have opened registrations in March to enable families to make plans, spread payments, and to ensure that we have enough time to process everyone and be ready for when summer hits.
Yes we did! Thought with the amount of snow we have right now it might be more akin to mud camping. But we have all our fingers and toes crossed that by President’s week the snow gods will have delivered another foot of the white stuff for our snowshoeing and camping program.
The 2017/2018 school year is here already and after an awesome fun packed summer here at the Club, we are excited to transition to our after-school program and to meet all our new and returning members.
