Summertime Fun with Robbinsdale Area Schools Adventure Club!
Posted on 07/20/2018
More than 1,000 students are keeping busy with Adventure Club this summer!

The district's before/after school child care program serves students in K-5. Care from professional staff is available before school (beginning at 6:30 a.m.) and after school (until 6 p.m.). The Minnesota Afterschool Accreditation Program has accredited all sites.

Summer activities include weekly service learning projects, field trips and enrichment. Program Director Melissa Laatsch said benefits of the Adventure Club are far reaching.

"It provides families with a convenient and enriching environment right within their student's school," she said. "These students have access to enrichment classes, school-sponsored activities and extra help from classroom teachers. Family surveys show more connection to their school because of Adventure Club programming. That gives our staff an opportunity to build a relationship with the whole family."

Parents have left positive feedback about the summer activities on the program's Facebook page, including "My kids love Adventure Club! Amazing staff! Variety of field trips in the summer. Great activities!" Another wrote "We love Adventure Club! The staff makes each day fun and educational. The are dedicated and thoughtful."

Founded in 1976, Adventure Club is one of the oldest before/after school programs in the state. For more information, go to http://ced.rdale.org/k-12_youth/adventure_club.
