Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Summer Journey program?

The Lincoln County R-Ill Summer Journey is a free extended learning summer program

operated by the Lincoln County R-Ill to provide a world-class educational experience to district students. BES, CBE, and HPE attend Boone Elementary. CPE, MSE attend Cuivre Park Elementary. LES and WCE attend Lincoln Elementary. Grades 6-8 attend Troy South Middle.

Must my child be in attendance every hour of the program in order to receive credit for the Summer Journey program?

No. It is assumed that students may have vacations or camps planned. While incentives for good attendance are available to students, a child's occasional absence should not deter parents from enrolling their child(ren) in the program.

Will transportation be provided to and from the program?

Yes, transportation will be provided for those student families who qualify for transportation during the regular school year. However, bus routes will be limited and may vary from routes during the regular school year. Transportation information will be sent to those families who require transportation as soon as the plan becomes available.

What will my child(ren) do each day?

Elementary and Middle School Summer Journey students will attend exciting academic classes where they may read interesting adventure stories, play language arts games, and/or use technology to solve math mysteries. A daily schedule consists of academic classes of Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Science or Social Studies. Students will also explore fun-filled courses for the first half of the program, followed by three different courses in the last half of the program.

How does the incentive program work?

Many students will win daily incentives for their efforts through a daily drawing or some similar format established by the summer site. Your student is also eligible to receive one of the following incentives for their Summer Journey attendance:

• 0 hours missed= $100 gift card

• Up to 6.5 hours missed = $75 gift card

• Over 6.5 and up to 13 hours missed = $50 gift card

Will breakfast and lunch be served each day?

Yes, students will be served breakfast and lunch using the same system used during the regular school term. As a result, students should plan to purchase meals (or bring lunch) in the same manner as during the school year.

K-intermediate Summer Journey Course Offerings


(students entering K in the Fall) Adventures in My Own Backyard

Kindergarten "explorers" respond with fascination and wonder as they explore habitats typically found in their own backyard. Multi-sensory activities are used extensively, providing opportunities for meaningful engagement with the learning process. Students' knowledge of the natural world is fostered along with concepts such as color and shape recognition, fine motor development, phonemic awareness, and counting and sorting. This unit offers multi-level activities and is appropriate for districts with a wide variance in student population, including children with little or no previous school experience.

Kamp Kindergarten

In the afternoon portion of the Kindergarten day, students unpack their sleeping bags for a quiet time as they listen to nature sounds and engage in physical movement activities focused around the theme of camping. Students develop cooperation skills as they investigate manipulatives and games during Backpack Explorations. From creating s'mores to sharing campfire stories, young campers enjoy their stay at Kamp Kindergarten.
