We have some exciting DCS teacher-led activities planned including nature investigations, science experiments, food fun, photography, team bonding and community games, Spanish, line dance/swing/stomp, book club, Dexter history, and drama, just to name a few! On a typical day, your student will experience three different activities, have some social time with their group, and enjoy breakfast and a sack lunch. Each day students will travel to their various sessions with an adult group leader, a group assistant, and grade leveled peers.
