Summer Adventures Academic Explorers
This summer has been a huge success and a lot of fun for all of our BGCDT Explorers! Working in collaboration with the education teams at School District 220 and 300, we are offering a remedial academic program combined with themed weekly adventures to help catch our kids up in math and reading and, most importantly – make learning fun after a very challenging year.
Over the summer, members have explored the arctic, studied the rainforest, learned about the Mayan culture, dove into the ocean, explored the galaxy, became superheroes, and got magical with unicorns and dragons. Explorers had a lot of fun making superhero masks, creating murals, doing STEM and arts and crafts, and taking selfies at our selfie station. Members had a variety of opportunities to learn all about nature with hands-on activities through field trips and, of course, participate in our summer athletics programs such as flag football and soccer!
