Girl's Time, Junior!
A New Adventure for Girls entering 3rd-4th Grades

  • Does your daughter blossom in girl-only space?

  • Does she thrive in a calm but fun environment?

  • Are mixed-gender groups sometimes too rowdy or rambunctious for her?

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

Girls Time, led by Adventure Educator Elaine Barenblat, meets 9 times in 9 months and replaces mixed-gender ARK classes. The curriculum for Girls Time is the same as that of our Core Ark courses. The delivery of the curriculum is uniquely tailored for the girls. 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.

Group Size and Selection:

Group size is purposely small to facilitate a close-knit group. Participants will be selected based on seeming ability to coalesce as a group. You may go ahead and register and your placement will be pending Elaine's approval.


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.

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.
