We’re looking for volunteers and ideas for our Exploratories! It’s a wonderful way for our middle school students to have a wide variety of experiences so they can explore their current interests or try new things. We’re looking for people to share their interests and have fun with a group of middle school students!

Dates: Wednesday, November 2 - Friday, November 4 from 1:30-3:00

An exploratory class meets for about 90 minutes for three days during one week. You would lead the class for all three days.

Examples of exploratory classes:

Scrapbooking, sacred dance, karate, swing dance, film making, knitting, basket weaving, murals, card making, equestrian, fly tying and lure making, fishing, Zumba, Dutch language, skits, cartoon animation, Claymation, origami structures, wandering in God’s creation, disc golf, cake decorating.

If you’d like more information about this or would like to volunteer, please contact Lori Bolt - lbolt@legacycs.org

We will follow the format of the National Mom's in Prayer Group and a prayer guide will be available to follow.
