LEGO Sports Spectacular – 2:40pm – 3:40pm – Click here to view flierAdobe_PDF_file_icon_32x32

Some lessons focus on the importance of physical fitness and different aspects of fitness such as stamina and strength, while other lessons describe the mechanics of the sport, like the physics involved in golf or the components of a stationary bike.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens on Fridays after school gets out before the exploratories begin?
Great question! After school gets out on Fridays and before our exploratories begin, there is a 30 minute lunch period at the lunch tables; Growing Outdoors staff will be there to supervise. At 1:15 we get the afternoon fun started!
What happens if my child participates in Club Oak Park?
At the end of each exploratory, Growing Outdoors staff will walk those children enrolled in Club Oak from their exploratory to the appropriate on campus location and release them to the Club Oak Park staff.
What do I do if my child has to miss an exploratory day?
Please call us as early as possible (before 11 is preferable!) at (818) 889-8383. The site coordinator will have daily attendance sheets for each exploratory, so it would be helpful to have that information as early as possible. If a child that is expected does not show up for their exploratory, we will first check with the school to confirm that they were in attendance that day, and then we will call the parents to confirm their child’s safety.
Why are the exploratories divided into trimesters?
We feel that students will get the most out of each exploratory when they have consistent time to be with the same students and the same instructors to build a rapport. By making each trimester eight to ten weeks in length, students will have three opportunities during the school year to try different exploratories. Each trimester will offer different class options for the various age groups!
Why does registration close before the first day of each exploratory?
Growing Outdoors wants to provide the best possible after school enrichment program. Therefore, we need time to train and prepare our staff, in addition to reviewing each child’s health form, prior to the first day of each exploratory.
Why are the exploratories priced differently?
The price of all of our exploratories is based on number of class meetings, supply costs, staffing needs, and specialized instructor costs. By basing it on these factors, you can rest assured that you are getting what you pay for!

{OHES} I have a question for you!
