Summer child care option for older elementary and middle school students — THAT THEY WILL ACTUALLY ENJOY!
Vertical is a summer experience like no other. Each day is chalked full of activities: crazy experiences, learning opportunities and just plain fun. Summer is a time for trying new things, experiencing adventure and changing up routines from the normal school year.
Students entering grades 5-6-7-8 in fall of 2018.
Beginning the week of June 5 and running through the week of August 14. From 7:30AM until 6PM daily Monday-Friday. Choose from 3-4-5 day plans.
We are working on making this as cost-effective as possible! Stay tuned!
Vertical will be lead by RiverTree Jackson’s Student Ministry. Beth Kinkaid, FUSE Team Leader, will lead Vertical along with returning college students who we’ve invested in over the years. Email Beth with questions.
All costs include lunch and an afternoon snack. And don’t worry, during registration you’ll be able to let us know if your student has any food requirements. Our amazing cooks will make sure the needs of each student are taken care of.
We get to INVEST in the next generation.
Imagine what could happen if students had the opportunity to rub shoulders with leaders who could help them navigate the perils of early adolescence. At RiverTree, we love the next generation and we see this opportunity to invest in them during the summer as too good to pass up. Therefore, we have created Vertical as a Summer Experience. The next generation has so much to offer, they just need some space and time to connect with leaders who will pour into them and give them tools to move forward.
Students get space to EXPLORE and DISCOVER and LEAD.
Students have time in the summer to explore interests and activities that they may not be able to during the school year.
Parents get peace of mind.
They say “idle time is the devil’s playground,” and summer can be notorious for this. Vertical gives parents peace of mind knowing that not only are their kids safe, but they are being invested in and built up, all the while having an absolute blast.
Field Trips and Excursions
Each week at Vertical, we will take a field trip to a different attraction in our region. Some will be purely for fun, some will be educational, but all will be affordable. All field trips will be priced at $12. More details about Vertical’s field trips are coming soon!
It’s fun to see and experience things. Particularly when those things are free! There are plenty of local places that are free and would make great half day excursions. This summer, Vertical will be exploring the surrounding area. Don’t worry, we will let you know when we are heading off for adventures when we get closer to them!
SPECIAL WILDSIDE PRICING FOR VERTICAL STUDENTS!
WildSide is an amazing week-long camp experience for middle school students run by RiverTree Church. This year, WildSide is Sunday June 18 to Friday June 23. Students who are registered for Vertical and are entering 6-7-8-9 grade in the fall of 2017 can participate. We have special WildSide pricing for Vertical students! Students who are registered for Vertical and do not want to go to WildSide will have the week off. Students who are entering 5th grade in the fall, and are still one year away from being able to go to WildSide, will have the week off. If childcare for 5th graders during WildSide week is an obstacle, let us brainstorm possibilities with you. See more details about WildSide and special Vertical pricing here.
