Summer Meals 2017

Six weeks of food and fun for ages 4-13!

What is Mazemakers?

Mazemakers is a small, dynamic learning community of young people ages 9-13.

In contrast to traditional summer programs, at Mazemakers we emphasize choice, challenges, and community building. Participants choose their own courses and projects, challenging themselves and each other in cooperative problem solving and trust activities. Together, we build a flourishing community of respect, intellectual vitality, and imagination.

What is Summer Meals?

Through our Summer Meals program, Fourth is able to offer breakfast and lunch to children ages 4-8. Between breakfast and lunch, we provide programming in art, music, outdoor games, and “Imagination Station.”

The Summer Meals Programs of Fourth Presbyterian Church seek to feed the bodies, minds, and spirits of our participants and our broader community through our summer feeding program with creative and engaging curriculum that challenges all of us to shine as beacons of hope.

We believe and we teach that: God loves you. We love you. You matter.

We’ve had a great first week at our Summer Meals Programs, and are looking forward to an even MORE fun week 2!  Every group gets to go on a field trip this week, so make sure you send in your child’s permission slips!  You can fill out a permission slip at the church, or fill out a permission slip online.

Tuesday (7/11) – 4 & 5 year olds – Swan Boats and Frog Pond

Taking a ride on an Old Town Trolley, our Ducklings (4s) and Frogs (5s) will travel to the Swan Boats and go play in the Frog Pond.  KIDS WILL GET WET, so please send your child to our program with their bathing suit on and a change of clothes and towel.

Thursday (7/13) – 6 & 7 year olds – Children’s Museum

One of our favorite field trips, the Monkeys (6s) and Sharks (7s) will go spend the morning playing in the Children’s Museum!

Friday (7/14) – 8 year olds – USS Constitution

A new field trip for us this year, the Wolves (8s) will travel to the USS Constitution for a chance to tour the galleries and a special hands-on presentation about the simple machines used to build Old Ironsides.

Summer Meals over the years

By | Summer Meals | No Comments

The Summer Meals Programs of Fourth Presbyterian Church began back in 1995 with a few kids and some lunch.  We’ve grown and changed over the years, and are looking forward to celebrating our 22 summer this year!  Take a look at this slideshow (that we’ve shared at FourthFest over the past few years) to see the ways in which our program has changed… and stayed the same!
