2017 Summer Enrichment Camps


SPRING INTO SUMMER!!

Summer is a time for fun and games, going on adventures, making new friends and making memories. It is also an important time to keep our children actively learning so they can avoid the “summer slide” that occurs when they are out of school.

At Spring Forward Learning Center’s Summer Enrichment Camps, your child will be entertained and engaged all summer long with a variety of activities that promises to make this the best summer ever!

The six week camps are FREE and are being held at the these local schools:
Frances Willard
Rock Island Academy
Rock Island Center for Math & Science
Longfellow
Earl Hansen
Thomas Jefferson Elementary (Milan)

Your children will have a blast going on field trips, swimming, reading and other activities. The camps are the right mix of summer learning and fun!

PERSONAL BELONGINGS
Children should not bring personal belongings to camp, including, but not limited to, MP3s, cell phones, other electronics, games, toys, etc. SFLC is not responsible for lost, misplaced, or stolen items.

Parent Meeting
Before a camper can enroll, all parents/guardians are required to attend an informational meeting. Meetings will cover program activities, staff expectations, and provide parents and guardians a chance to meet staff. Meetings will be held at camp sites at 9:00AM and 6:00PM on Thursday, June 8th. If you cannot attend either of the meetings, you must contact the Spring Forward office before your student can start camp.

Attendance Policy
Student participation is vital in order to gain social and academic benefits of our program. One of our primary goals is to help your child maintain or increase his or her reading level over the summer. Below is the attendance policy for SFLC students:

All absences must be reported to Spring Forward staff before 9AM (309-793-5900 Ext. 250).Children with unexcused absences during the week are NOT to attend Friday field trips. Students may not have more than 3 unexcused absences or 5 excused absences throughout the six week camp.

Positive Behavior
SFLC strives to provide a safe, positive environment for students to grow academically and socially throughout the summer. While we acknowledge summer is a time for students to have fun, we have high expectations of students participating in the program. Staff will work to ensure parents are informed of students’ behavior, both positive and negative. Students must show consistent behavior in order to participate in privileges like field trips.

Field Trips Fridays
SFLC will have weekly field trips. In order for students to participate, they must attend every day of camp during the week and have show positive behavior throughout the week. Parents who wish to chaperone a field trip are encouraged to talk to Camp Coordinators to find out more information regarding field trips.
