Do you love to create with legos? Put together lego kits? Build, share, and get amazing ideas from your friends? If you answered “YES!” to any of these questions, the Lego Maniac Club is for you. The familiar clink of legos will be heard around Evergreen in this fun-filled, inspirational club. Bring your own or use legos that are provided. Kids will get a chance to share their creations and inspire each other as they use legos to design their own creations and/or use pre-designed kits. Our final product will be a creation of lego videos that you will be able to watch on You Tube from the comfort of your own home

Our Beanstalk Forest is designed to cultivate the curiosity of inner strength and goal-setting. By playing around in the trees, our young adventurers take healthy risks and transfer the lessons to their lives. Over the 8 club sessions, participants will learn to how to fit and use their gear, execute the proper commands of the Beanstalk Forest, how to lower participants from the high ropes course and practice belay rescue techniques. This club is open to 4th-8th grade students that are willing to listen, learn, and apply climbing and ropes course skills.
For the motivated climber, our leaders can even support your ropes course guide certification (belay-certification is a prerequisite).
