DIY Nights & Movie Nights
Check our calendar for our next Teen DIY Night or Movie Night. The agenda is different each time. Past DIY Nights have included ClaySculpture, Jewelry Making, Duct Tape Art, Chocolate Festival, Painting, SpaNight, Origami, Smoothies, Taco Night, and many more! Movie nights include free refreshments. Grades 6-12
Grades 6-12: Our summer theater group meets weekly in July to put on a performance for the Children's Summer Reading Club in August. We usually perform a readers' theater version of a favorite children's picture book. Since our plays are readers' theater, memorizing lines is optional. We make all of our own props, scenery, and costumes during the summer and have a great time!
Look in our Teen Summer Reading Club handout/calendar in June for our first meeting date of the summer.
