SummerQuest kicks off with a Star Wars Party!
We kicked off our SummerQuest Summer Learning Program with a Star Wars Party on June 15, but you can still register for SummerQuest, which is the State’s new name for the Summer Reading Program. As always, we will have weekly incentives for students to read and keep up their skills during the long, hot summer.
We added the new Patch Power program this year, where you can earn patches just like Scout badges when you complete four activities. We have six patches this summer and hope to add more next year. You can choose a few or complete all six: Caped Avenger, Board Gaming Genius, Epic Wizard, Globetrotter, Interstellar Seeker, and Mad Chef. Attending designated programs counts towards earning the patch, or you can do all of the activities on your own.
We have four mini-camps this year: Coder Explorers (full), Fabric Fun, Tangram Tangle, and Music for the Screen. Construction Club is back on most Thursdays, and we have Book Bingo in July. You can see the entire schedule and register for programs at our Event Calendar.
