Three Summer Inspiration Programs for 2014

Join our faculty and staff  as they inspire children to try new things and enjoy learning many different skills. These not-for-credit, just-for-fun programs allow students to explore in the company of other students who are interested in the topic. All programs are open to children from the wider Steamboat community, as well as to Emerald's own students. Each program has a maximum enrollment, so be sure to get your form in early! The dates for each program are different so be sure to check the schedule for each individual program.   A light snack will be provided.
