The Dearborn Public Schools is now enrolling children ages 3 (toilet learned) to 12 for the fun-filled Summer Adventure Club/Camp program that runs June 21-Aug. 18, 2017.
The Summer Adventure Club/Camp offers children an exciting variety of activities such as daily swimming, science activities, music, life skills, arts and crafts, dance, team building, and weekly field trips.
The program will be held at Snow Elementary School, 2000 Street, Dearborn MI 48124.
This year’s theme is “Our Heroes!” with weekly themes being:
June 21 – 23 Who is a Hero?
June 26 – 30 Heroes of the Past
July 3 – 7 Teacher Heroes

There is a $35 registration fee for the first child and $15 for each additional child.
Preschool, School Age, and Middle School children:
$185 weekly less than 9 hours* (includes field trip admissions; $6-8 bus/fuel surcharges additional)
$200 weekly more than 9 hours* (includes field trip admissions; $6-8 bus/fuel surcharges additional)
