Summer Trek, Grades 1-7

School breaks for summer, but for Summer Trek students, learning never stops! Summer Trek engages students in activities to discover the world around them.

Each week kids have the opportunity to work on theme projects, swim at the Spring Lake Park High School pool, join special-interest clubs and participate in a weekly field trip or special event.

Your credit card will not be charged until your child is confirmed in the program. Once you are approved, you will receive an email confirmation and your credit card will be charged.

Registration for our summer program opens on Monday, March 2. Our spaces fill quickly. Do NOT wait to register if you would like a spot in our program. Current families will receive priority from March 2 through April 1.

Starting on or about March 15, registrations will be reviewed in the order that they were received by our online system. In order for a registration to be processed, all Community Education program balances must be paid in full. Accounts with a balance overdue will not be processed.
