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.

Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) Guidelines:  Our Child Care program and activities will look different for the Summer of 2021. In order to keep our students, their families, and staff safe and healthy, staff will be following procedures recommended by MDH, and in line with CDC guidance, throughout the summer. As required by MDH for Certified Centers, our staff are operating under the guidance of a Covid-19 Preparedness Plan that protects children, families, staff and community. Parents who would like to review the plan should ask staff for a copy.
