Enrichment for Hands-On Learning & Fun
Summer Journey’s afternoon curriculum includes hands-on exploratory Journey courses with embedded academics. These Journey courses enable students to actively engage with topics in the fields of Engineering & Construction, Sports & Teamwork, Arts & Crafts, Theatre & Performance, and more. Most Journey courses include a teacher manual and scripted lessons.
In 2016, Summer Journey began offering opportunities for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education as part of its afternoon Journey curriculum. Sample STEM courses include Sports Science, Scratch Camp, Flight & Aerodynamics, to name a few.
For grades 1–8, districts choose a total of six Journey courses, three each for the first and last 12 days of the session. Kindergarten selects one “Just for Fun” curriculum.
