  • Adventure Girls [Tuesdays, Grades 3-5]

    Dates: September 29-October 13; October 20-November 3; November 10-24
    Day: Tuesdays
    Cost: $75

    Instructors: Chuck Allen, Pre-Primary Physical Education & Experiential Learning / Shannon Lukz, Primary Faculty and Director of the North Star Collaborative

    Adventure Girls was started in 2012 by Mrs. Lukz and Mr. Allen as a way for third through fifth grade girls to build resilience through challenging games and activities, as well as to promote health and improve fitness through adventure-packed programming. Participants also have many opportunities to develop their leadership and communication skills through group problem-solving tasks.  

    Research shows many benefits to being exposed to “stress episodes” in building resilience and trust. Adventure Girls not only fills that role but also provides many opportunities for delivering humor, which proves to “convey intelligence…and confidence.”

    Leadership and adventure skills are developed in our Adventure Girls setting. AG is an excellent way for adventurous third, fourth, and fifth graders to sharpen both adventure, survival, and leadership skills. 

    The skills that Adventure Girls build with our program are more crucial than ever, and we plan to do programming for our girls this fall, with appropriate precautions. In addition to maintaining safe distancing, washing hands frequently and wearing masks, we will operate in three three-week blocks, by grade level:
        • Fourth Grade will be Tuesdays, September 29, October 6 and 13.
        • Fifth Grade will be Tuesdays, October 20, 27 and November 3.
        • Third Grade will be Tuesdays November 10, 17 and 24.

    Adventure Girls takes place outside no matter the weather so please help the girls be prepared for the predicted weather that day. We will supply a snack but girls are welcome to bring additional snacks to help fuel their experiences.

    If Laurel School pivots to School@Home, Adventure Girls will pivot to virtual meetings as well. Girls will participate in a virtual community meeting and receive assignments that may require they go outside.

    Minimum enrollment 8 students per grade level / Maximum enrollment 12 students per grade level

    Feel free to contact instructors Chuck Allen (cAllen@LaurelSchool.org) and Shannon Lukz (sLukz@LaurelSchool.org) with questions about programming, or After School Coordinator Tina Ohmart (tOhmart@LaurelSchool.org) with questions about registration.
