Freeze tag! Blob tag! Perpetual tag! Pretty much anything with the word "tag" in it here is fair game. We might just even make up our own!

Let's Do Art

Mondays - Kindergarten-2nd grade, 4:00-5:00

Once again, we’ll explore many types of art, all hands on, and kiddo input will be requested - bring your best ideas. We’ll definitely do some painting, drawing, clay, collage, and this spring, we will add some Scientific Art - or Artful Science.  Join us for a lot of fun every Monday - can’t wait to see everyone and get started!

Karate Kids

Mondays - Kindergarten-2nd grade, 2:15-3:15

This club has a special cost of $155.

 

Join 6 time AAU Karate National Champion, Sensei Justin Wilson, in learning the fundamentals of Shito-Ryu Karate-Do. Rooted in Japanese culture, traditional Karate-Do will test students’ physical ability while expanding their understanding of integrity, responsibility and respect. ‘Treat others the way that you want to be treated’ is the golden rule of Karate, and will be heavily emphasized.

 

Students will have a blast learning the basics of Karate, bully busting/self-defense, and mindfulness. Outside of punching and kicking, we will be exploring Japanese culture.  There are a lot of fun things to learn and practice that translate to everyday well-being.

 

Whether students want to test their fitness ability or have a basic interest in Japanese Culture, Karate-Do surely has something for everyone. 

Instructor: Sensei Justin Wilson

Lego Maniacs

Mondays - Kindergarten-2nd grade, 4:00-5:00

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 building club! 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. By the end of the session, each participant will assemble, and keep, a couple of simple kits!

On Belay!

Wednesdays* - Kindergarten-8th Grade, 3:45-5:15*

This Adventure Team club has a cost of $100/4-week session

 

*All ages & all ability levels*

 

Climb our indoor wall with us!

Build confidence and learn the basics to rock climbing and wall climbing.

Through care, compassion, and little bit of grit you will see that each week your goals become more attainable. Kids generally have a natural inclination to scurry up trees, poles and furniture. We might as well gear them up and teach them how to do it with style points. Strong-willed & timid kids alike get to show their autonomy, confidence, and perseverance.

*Please note: due to anticipated demand, and in order to get more kids on the wall, we are breaking this club into two 4-week sessions. The first session will be March 16, 23, 30 and April 6. The second will be April 20, 27, and May 11 and 18. Your child will be placed into only one of these sessions. We plan to place the younger kids Group 1 and the older ones in Group 2, but your child will not specifically be placed until after sign-ups conclude.

***Riders must be able to ride a bike without training wheels. They will need to bring their own bike and helmet; If this is a barrier to participation, you can contact maggie.rumley@evergreenccs.org and we can see what we can do.
