Summer Adventure: You Can Make It Happen in Your Community.
Butler, Bill
Summer Adventure, a university-based, full-day, community education program for kindergartners and elementary students is described. The program offers physical and enrichment activities, an "extravaganza," and production and leadership in training activities. The physical activities include golf, swimming, volleyball, and gymnastics. Fitness tests are given. The enrichment activities have been developed for specific grade levels in the areas of fine arts, crafts, science, math, drama, music, expressive communications, computers, sign language, literature, foreign language, nutrition, and social development. The "extravaganza" offers adventure and enrichment through programs designed to entertain children and introduce them to a variety of new and interesting topics. The production and leadership activities offer fifth through eighth graders opportunities to develop special presentations on their own by using stage, drama, radio, television, journalism, literature, song, or dance. Concluding discussion recounts successes of the increasingly popular program. (RH)
