Calhoun SummerKids

Join us for the 28th year of SummerKids, a four-week summer program for Calhoun children entering 3’s – 4's program. Staffed by veteran Calhoun faculty, the program offers a healthy balance of age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities. Children enjoy arts and crafts, music time, cooking, story time, jewelry making, theater/movement, indoor gym time, outdoor water play with sprinklers, science and Spanish language exposure. The day is capped with the traditional Calhoun homemade organic juice popsicle!

Students may enroll for one week or more! Half-day options for incoming 3's.
