The Basement Summer 6th -9th Gr

The Basement - Summer 2017

Students entering 6th - 9th grade are invited to join us at The Basement for fun, relaxation and adventure. Water parks, bowling, trips to the mall, going out for lunch, movies, Valleyfair, hanging out with friends, cooking, reading, games and sports are just some of the choices available this summer.

Responsibility and Independence

The Basement is especially designed for students in middle school as they grow into responsible teens. At times, students will have the opportunity to be outside of the direct supervision of adults with clear expectations about appropriate boundaries and rules. This will apply to certain times onsite, as well as some fieldtrips throughout the summer. Abuse of rules, check-in times and set parameters will result in the loss of privilege in this area. Attention will be given to the needs of young teens and pre-teens and at times different age groups may have different boundaries in terms of supervision. We encourage students to be independent, but provide support for safety and learning.


Some of the trips you can expect include Valleyfair, water parks, bowling, and the mall. In addition to the scheduled trips we have left space for the students to plan some of our trips. Our location on the city bus line also allows for impromptu small group trips around the community!
