We are so happy to be in Week 4 of Summer STEM! Each day presents unique opportunities for us all and we love it.

We aspire to travel daily after lunch. If you can think of some free or inexpensive activities for our group, please let us know. Half of our crew will be kayaking at the Anne Springs Close Greenway on Tuesday at Lake Haigler while the other half will see the Lego Ninjago Movie at Regal Manchester in Rock Hill. On Wednesday, half will watch the Trolls World Tour movie at Regal Manchester while the other half goes swimming.

On Thursday, July 15th, we begin fishing at the Anne Springs Close Greenway. Please wear clothing and shoes that will be appropriate for a fishing outing. Friday will be a swim day for everyone.

Tech-savvy children will be enrolled in zombie scavenger hunts in uptown Charlotte. They will be in teams and will need a device with Wi-Fi capabilities. If your child does not have a device, he or she will not be able to participate in this activity. We will have additional fun planned for those who are lack devices, so PLEASE do NOT go and buy phones!

From August 13-15th, 2021 the boys are taking a 2-night camping trip to Lake Wateree State Park in Winnsboro, SC. Please complete the forms and waivers for your young man to participate. We only have 20 slots so please register TODAY!
