The Adventure Club Summer Program is open to children three years old through those who completed 5th grade in the previous school year. Our program is designed to meet the needs of local families who need quality, affordable care for their children. We offer children a safe, caring and fun place to spend their summer vacation. Our summer teachers provide the children social, emotional, physical and spiritual guidance as they lead them in lots of fun-filled activities throughout the summer.
Each year registration for the summer program opens to members of Simpsonville Baptist Church and those families already enrolled in Adventure Club programs on March 1. Registration opens to the general public on April 1. The summer program has a 3 day minimum. Families will only be able to register for 1 or 2 days if spots are available at the end of April.
The summer program will officially begin the day immediately following the last day of Shelby County Public School and will end in August, the day before Shelby County Public School begins. Our summer hours are 6:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Adventure Club will be closed Memorial Day and July 4 in observance of Independence Day. If July 4 falls on the weekend, a day will be scheduled to observe this holiday. A calendar of summer events will be available close to the beginning of each summer.
The Adventure Club staff works hard to ensure that our children have the best possible experience while attending the summer program. AC brings new activities each year to ensure all children have a new experience with the same safe and secure environment. The AC staff provides weekly themed activities that go along with our crafts, career days, devotions, and game activities. We also provide several opportunities throughout the summer for the children to go on fun field trips in the Louisville area. Throughout the summer, the children also have several opportunities to choose a "Club" to be a part of. Those clubs include activities such as cooking, soccer, basketball, art, weird science and more. We also daily participate in the Shelby County Library's summer reading program. We will begin taking our older grades to Simpsonville Park to utilize the spacious grounds during the day with planned activities and games.
