2020 Information

Summer 2020!
NEW: We are open on Fridays this year! All students entering 5th-8th grade are welcome to join us for an incredible adventure this summer. We look forward to great days filled with exciting events, trips, and activities to keep your heart pounding.  If you are trying to keep your finger on what’s hot in our community for youth…Check THE PULSE!

THE PULSE is designed to meet the needs of middle school students as they grow into responsible teens. At times, young people will be outside of the direct supervision of adults with clear expectations about appropriate boundaries and rules. This will apply to certain times on site as well as many field trips throughout the summer. Abuse of rules, check-in times, and set parameters will result in loss of privileges. Attention to the needs of young teens and pre-teens will be given and, at times, different age groups will have different boundaries in terms of supervision.

THE PULSE families pick their days of attendance for the summer; calendar due by 4/15. Because of this, there are no alloted vacation requests after 4/15.

PULSE Kids

Participants of THE PULSE will have the opportunity to go on many field trips throughout the summer. A schedule will be available in mid-March. In addition to the scheduled trips, THE PULSE may add impromptu trips as decided by the participants. A bus may be available daily. Ideas will be generated by participants and could include an afternoon movie on rainy days, trips to Dairy Queen, local parks, etc.
