EAGLE ZONE
School Age Care Summer Program
Eagle Zone provides a fun, safe and enriching environment for youth throughout
summer. The program focuses on creating an environment that is respectful,
inclusive and nurturing for youth in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Children
enrolled in Eagle Zone have the freedom to explore their interests, be physically
active and socialize with their peers.

On a daily basis, Eagle Zone offers coordinated activities in the areas of arts and
crafts, STEM experiments, service projects, fitness activities and much more. The
program also takes field trips on a weekly basis and incorporates special events
throughout the course of the summer.

EAGLE ZONE: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Eagle Zone’s full-day summer program begins at 6:15 AM and ends at 6:00 PM. There are two
additional registration options available to families who are also attending EPIC. More information
regarding Eagle Zone registration options for families who are also enrolled in EPIC can be found
on page 9 of this catalog.
When does Eagle Zone summer registration open?
Summer programming opens online at 8:00 AM on February 8th.
What are the qualifying ages to enroll in the program?
Children entering kindergarten next fall through children who will be completing sixth
grade this spring are eligible to enroll in the program.
What are the dates that the program will be running?
The program runs from June 12th to August 16th and is CLOSED July 4th & 5th.
How much will Eagle Zone cost in the summer?
Full-day Eagle Zone Programming costs $45/day per child for a standard rate. If the child is
registered within three days of the date of care, that is considered a “drop-in”. The drop-in
rate is $52/day per child, and subject to availability. There are additional options for
families who are also enrolling in EPIC. More information can be found on page 9.
What type of schedule do I need to commit to?
Families must register for a minimum of 5 days throughout the course of the summer.
Families can “pick their days” based on when they need care.
Will snacks be provided?
Eagle Zone will provide a morning and afternoon snack. Children who wish to have an additional
snack are encouraged to bring a healthy option from home.
Do children need to bring a lunch?
Children must bring a bag lunch and beverage, unless otherwise noted. There may be some field
trips where a lunch is provided, but parents will be notified ahead of time when that is to happen.
Lunches should be dry bag lunches, with no refrigeration requirements. If this changes, families
will be notified by the site staff.

What you need to know about
		TARGETED SERVICES
Children can qualify to attend select camps for FREE this summer based on classroom teacher recommendations
through a program called Targeted Services. These classes are identified with a . Funding for your child’s
participation is provided by the State of Minnesota’s Targeted Services program. Participation is optional and at the
discretion of parents.

Camps are taught by licensed teachers and designed to support academic and social skills in a supportive and fun
atmosphere. Student choice is an important aspect of engaged learning. Our camps cover a wide variety of topic areas
and meet district academic standards. Though it may sound on the surface like just a fun camp, the curriculum is well
thought out and designed to meet your student’s academic needs, encompassed in a fun theme.

Our goal is to provide a program that enhances student engagement, creates meaningful experiences and supports
students’ academic goals. To keep your child’s mind active all summer long, we recommend signing up for at least
four camps.
