Summer Stretch is a program I did as a middle school youth and loved and wanted to bring to St. Joseph and St. Paul. This summer the youth going into 6th-9th grade (fall of 2022) will being DIVING into the letters from St. Paul.
It is a 9-week program in the summer where each week we will start out with a short 20 min. lesson. We will then go out into the community and do some sort of community service work to teach the youth the importance of giving back (locations may change). After 2 hours of volunteer work we will have lunch. Most weeks we will eat at the church but, as indicated in the chart on the next page, there will be couple of times we will eat elsewhere. We ask that students bring a packed lunch each week. After lunch we will have our afternoon activity. This is something fun in the community and surrounding area. (On weeks that swimsuits are needed I do ask that girls wear appropriate swimsuits, two pieces will be allowed, but if I feel they are too revealing I will ask the girls to put on a t-shirt. I would strongly recommend a one piece, to be safe.) After the afternoon activity, we will go back to the church.
The cost of this program is $50 per student.
