For students in grades 1 through 7, the Summer program is a follow-up to the Mooncrest After School Program. Throughout the summer, the children attend various camps. These include several days at Youthtowne, where they participate in fishing, horseback riding, go-carting, organized games, arts and crafts, and nature walks.
Summer also includes Art Camp, presented by Sweetwater Center for the Arts, and Music Camp, where students work with professional musicians to learn drums, harps, vocals and performance skills. Music Camp concludes with a concert open to the community.
Summer Garden Camp gives children an opportunity to explore and respect nature and provides the added benefit of nutritious home grown vegetables to take home and share with families. All camps include lessons in team building, respect and kindness as well as having fun!
Free USDA summer lunch is available weekdays at Mooncrest Neighborhood Center for children through age 18. After lunch children have an opportunity to read to staff and volunteers and earn points for prizes through the summer reading program.
