JHCM AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAMS

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Wonder Workshop

How do we encourage a sense of wonder in our children?  Here at the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum, we have discovered that kids want freedom to make their own choices in play and creativity. Each week, our amazing teachers will present a new material, tool, skill or project that will engage children at their own pace in creative learning and problem-solving. Projects will vary based on student interest and sense of wonder. Program content and activities will be tailored appropriately by age group:

Grades K-1: Wednesdays at Jackson Hole Children’s Museum: REGISTER

Grades 2-5: Thursdays at Jackson Hole Children’s Museum: REGISTER

TETON LITERACY CENTER PROGRAMS

Jackson Hole Children’s Museum is excited to continue our partnership with TLC this Fall to offer engaging and academic afterschool opportunities.

Teton Literacy Center will be accepting applications for Fall 2020 afterschool clubs from July 13th-30th. Applications and paperwork are online (www.tetonliteracy.org), in English and Spanish – click here. All families are encouraged to apply. 

TLC runs a weighted lottery to ensure the students who need these free programs most are served first. Families are notified of club acceptance or waitlist status on March 5th by TLC. 

Jackson Hole Children’s Museum is teaching the following programs which run from 3-5 PM at Jackson Hole Children's Museum.  

Space Wars (Grades 3-5 Mondays at JHCM / Grades 1-2 Tuesdays at JHCM):

Experience the might of the universe and all its wonder. Use the tools of space to uncover your curiosities. They might be lightyears away. And, did we mention Star Wars? In this club, “the force” will be felt as we create space ships, rovers and Saturn slime.

If you have application questions, or would like to learn about other TLC Fall Clubs, please call TLC at 307.733.9242, or visit www.tetonliteracy.org.
