Traveling is one of the best ways to learn. During Afterschool Adventures, we travel the world through hands-on experiences and a one of a kind enrichment curriculum. As part of this experience, our explorers relate back to their own culture and heritage to discover what makes them a unique global citizen. At the end of the year, Explorers will have visited the great wonders of the world, tasted food from around the globe, played games from other countries, and learned to view themselves as an integral part of the continued growth of our global community. Our aim is to instill a genuine love of exploration, adventure, and learning.
