Fun and exciting learning opportunities are available for children who enroll in Ebenezer Child Care Centers’ 2017 Summer Blast Program.

This year’s program will run from June 12 – August  31 at Ebenezer’s Southside (1496 South 29th Street), Downtown (340 West St. Paul Avenue), Oak Creek (220 West Forest Hill Avenue), and Wauwatosa (UnitedHealth Group Building at 10701 West Research Drive) locations.

According to Beverly Anderson, Executive Director for Ebenezer Child Care Centers, “Our Summer Blast Program for 2017 will again highlight Wisconsin and all the great things about our state! There will be an engaging, age-appropriate curriculum and fun field trips that teach our children about Wisconsin’s food, recreation and waterways. Our well-trained and enthusiastic child care professionals are so excited to launch this new program. It really will be the perfect way for children through age 12 to spend their summer!”

This year’s themes include:

June—Wisconsin Eats
Wisconsin has so much more to offer than just cheese when it comes to yummy culinary cuisine. Activities may include a trip to a nearby farm, cooking with a local chef & sampling food from the many different cultures that call Wisconsin home.

July—Recreation in Wisconsin
With the many trails and parks the state of Wisconsin has to offer for recreation activities, there is no time for TV or video games. Some fun things we may do include, learning the ins & outs of baseball, hiking one of the many trails, a visit from a Park Ranger & visiting critters at the zoo.

August—Wisconsin Waterways
We will explore the many different water ways in Wisconsin & all they have to offer. Activities may include boat rides, presentations from lifeguards, learning to fish, & a visit to the Reiman Aquarium inside Discovery World.

There is a program fee for preschool and school-age children who participate in Ebenezer’s 2017 Summer Program to help defray the costs of the field trips, special activities, and special guests. In addition, families will be charged Ebenezer’s standard weekly tuition fee which varies depending on the age of the child. All 3K/4K and school-age children will receive a specially-designed summer program t-shirt. To register or for more information, contact Ebenezer Child Care Centers at 414-643-5070.
