The Adventures Club
The Adventurer Club, led by Merle Robbins, is designed to strengthen parent-child relationships for kids ages 6-9 by providing specialized weekly activities tuned into the psychological needs of this age group while simultaneously giving parents opportunities for learning parenting skills and enjoying special activities with their children.
What will children do and learn in Adventurer Club Meetings?
Each child is encouraged to participate in all activities and parents/guardians are given assignments along with their child. There are many age-challenging activities on the Adventurer menu. These range from games and outdoor activities to nature exploration and family camping, field trips and community service projects. A five level age-specific curriculum is used along with approximately 80 specialized award areas of crafts, nature, recreation, spiritual development and home arts.
The Adventurer curriculum is divided into four levels:
- The Busy Bee level is designed for first-graders.
- The Sunbeam level for second-graders.
- The Builder for third-graders
- The Helping Hand level for fourth-graders.
