Summer Learning for Elementary School 

Summer Learning Adventure is a free, 19-day outdoor-themed enrichment program for currently enrolled kindergartner through 5th grade APS students. 

The kindergarten through second-grade program theme is NM Wild! Students will explore literacy, math, science, social studies, and the arts while emphasizing New Mexico plants, animals, habitats, aquatics, and geology. Students will be outdoors daily, learning in a camp-like setting using project-based, hands-on learning.

The third- through fifth-grade program theme is Making Connections: Be Super Arts Smart! Students will work with Fine Arts teachers to explore their superpower of creativity.

The goal of the Summer Learning Adventure is to provide a rich and engaging program that helps students learn, practice, and retain skills throughout the summer. We expect students to learn and try new things, get messy, and engage with activities that inspire and challenge them in new ways!
