Consider Epic Connection for your middle school student

Did you know District 622 has an after-school and summer care program for middle school students? Epic Connection is a fun, safe space for middle school students to build lasting friendships. Think of it as an older, more mature version of Adventure Connection, with plenty of freedom and space for students to be themselves. They won’t be bored—students will create their own t-shirts, signs, figurines, and more in the mobile maker space, compete in minute-to-win-it challenges, watch movies, enjoy free time on the computer, gym time, arts and crafts, cooking, games, and snacks. This summer, students will enjoy weekly field trips—including multiple visits to Valleyfair. Learn more at this link.
