We’ve got a lot going on this fall!
Our biggest program is our after school classes. They’ve rolled in our clubs, so kids can come for once a week enrichment or have something new to do each day.
Mondays: Trains (play with duplo, wooden, and plastic tracks and build trains)
Tuesdays: Crafts (weekly crafts and monthly lessons with an art teacher)
Wednesday: Free Play (Playground, Lego, Gravitrax, Magnatiles, etc.)
Thursday: Minecraft (play on our local creative and survival servers)
Friday: Programming (program in a variety of languages based on skill-level)
We’re also offering single day drop-in for folks who need something for their kids to do in a pinch and since our regular programming doesn’t start until August 29th, we’ve add two Wednesdays in August to the offerings as well.
Anime and Manga Club is a club for middle and high school students. It will meet twice a month on Thursdays from 6:30 – 8:00. Attendees will watch anime, read manga, chat about their favorite characters, and draw their own stories.
ASL Meetup is a monthly meetup on Tuesdays from 6 – 7:30 for all ages and skill levels to learn and practice American Sign Language. This meetup is facilitate by two qualified teachers fluent in ASL.
Scrabble Club meets weekly on Fridays from 4:30 – 5:30 and is for kids grades 3rd – 8th who want to learn Scrabble or improve their skills.
Lego Robotics Challenge Days happen two Saturdays a month for kids who can read sight words through 8th grade. Kids will team up to build attachments and program their robots to complete a new challenge each week. More weeks will be added (including possible homeschool times) if interest warrants it.
Drop-Ins are returning in September on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Kids (and their adults) can come play with all of the Lego, Magnatile, Gravitrax, Board Games, and more. We have something fun for kids aged 18mo through Middle and even High School.
School Break Camps are listed for days where LAPS elementary schools are out while LANL is not. As a bonus this year, we are partnering with Bankens Mountain Martial Arts to offer some Jiu Jitsu style fun and games as an optional add-on.
