An Adventure for Boys & Girls entering 5th-6th Grade

  • Does your son and daughter enjoy learning in a camp-like setting?

  • Does he or she thrive in a social environment and enjoy interacting with other children?

  • Does he or she do well in an experiential education setting, both indoors and outside?

  • Does he or she prefer a mixed-gender setting?

  • Does he or she like to ask and explore the answers to thought provoking questions?

    If so, then this innovative program may be the right fit for him or her.

ARK 5-6 meets 9 times in 9 months. The curriculum for ARK 5-6 is the same as that of our other courses, but altered to be age-appropriate for these higher level learners. Four times during the year the group will meet with the larger Adventure Rabbi Kids group so that they can have a sense of being part of something larger.

Each class begins with a 15-minute song session, which parents and siblings are invited and encouraged to attend. The song sessions are shared with the entire ARK community.

Our South Boulder location, the beautiful renovated Bear Creek Elementary School near NCAR, gives us easy access to outdoor space as well as a comfortable indoor space suited for children. Bear Creek is located at 2500 Table Mesa Drive Boulder, CO 80305.
