Grades K - 8
6 week series
$90- single-day session or $170- two-day session

The Afternoon Enrichment Program has been designed in response to enthusiasm for our children’s vacation programs and our delight in offering them. This program will be a continuation of the curriculum we’ve developed over the past two years and will include elements of circus skills training, music, cooking, building and arts and crafts projects under the direction of Lisa Carrino. It will take place outdoors in our beautiful natural setting and indoors in our community center. There will be plenty of physical activity as well as quiet times for more focused work. Homework help and strategy will be available during every session.

The program consists of:

Outside Time: For the first ½ hour after snack the entire group will go outside for big games or smaller group activities. Options will be decided during snack discussion. We might choose kick ball or bombardio as a big game while other folks might be interested in a nature walk or an outdoor building project.

Central Activity: The main activity of the afternoon will take place during the hour between 4 and 5 o’clock. Depending on weather we will practice circus skills, collect natural materials for design projects, cook, make music or work on building and traditional craft projects.

Story/Homework Time: During the final portion of the day children will be given the choice of either listening to a story or beginning their evening homework. Pompanuck staff and volunteers will be available for homework support and to help set up homework checklists to be completed at home.
