THE MAJORITY OF THE PROGRAM TIME WILL BE SPENT OUTDOORS. High quality clothing/footwear for playing outdoors in all weather conditions is required. Scholarships are available.
Adventurers meet after school for check in and circle time, then get geared up to head outside for core time, return inside for snack (families provide) and finish each day with choice time activities. Each day also includes unstructured free play in Lowell’s outdoor classroom and school forest. Examples of weekly themes include: water week, citizen science, earth week, conservation, creepy crawlies, winter around the world, pollinator week, friendship week and more!
FAMILIES SHOULD EXPECT CHILDREN TO PLAY OUTDOORS FOR THE MAJORITY OF THE PROGRAM TIME EACH DAY. Children must come to Adventure Club with the correct gear to play outdoors in hot, cold, wet, rainy, windy, snowy and muddy conditions and be able to transition to outside play each day unless severe conditions require indoor play.
The outdoor educator:youth ratio for adventure club is 1:10. Positive Energy Outdoors professional outdoor education staff run Adventure Club activities at Lowell. It is not an ISD 709 program.
A family handbook with details about what children need to bring and wear, as well as more details about program behavior expectations and policies will be e-mailed to all enrolled families.
