The summer program with RGEC is a great way for your kids to spend their summer learning and having fun while doing so. In preparation for delivery of a comprehensive Academic Enrichment Summer Program, Rio Grande Educational Collaborative prepares a curriculum binder which consists of hundreds of lessons and activities that reflect the summer program weekly themes. This year’s theme “Journey around the World Summer Adventure” offers Kindergarten through 5th graders a daily combination of in-class discovery and exploration, outdoor games and physical fitness, and hands-on applications of principles in world history, which is supported by our curriculum binder. Our unrivaled program presents essential Adventure, Teamwork, STEM, and Literacy concepts through the most creative activities. These lessons and activities in this curriculum binder combine learning and fun academic enrichment, bridging summer learning loss to satisfy parents, educators, and children.
This year’s summer program is Journey around the World!!!
Some examples of past years’ activities include:
Wet-n-Wild Water Fun
No better way to cool off in the summer heat than with wacky water challenges and adventures. These activities use water to teach simple science and math concepts, such as temperature, weight capacity, and color. Students also develop team building and problem-solving skills.
Mad Science Lab
These weekly themed science labs allow students to explore the scientific hypothesis model as they conduct a wide variety of experiments. They’ll become inventors as they conduct research and investigate the natural, earth, and life sciences.
Operation: Save Our Planet
These activities help our students explore ways to improve our environment through recycling and conservation. They’ll learn about local recycling programs, and create their own on-site recycling center, and come up with creative new ways to reuse items thrown in the trash to create art.
In Our Backyard
Students will learn all about the state of New Mexico as they participate in activities designed to teach them about the state we live in. They’ll learn about the geography, history, and culture of our state through fun activities and adventures.
Our summer program is offered Monday – Friday, with operating hours from 6:45am to 6:00pm, all for just $99/week (plus a $25 registration fee). There is a $5 discount for a 2nd child. (Does not apply for the 2020 Summer Program).
