BHK Great Explorations is a 21st CCLC Grant Funded After School Program for grades Kindergarten thru 5th grade.

Afterschool Programming

BHK Great Explorations programs establish a safe, enriching environment where students can explore, grow, and build relationships. In participating schools, GE operates four to five days per week afterschool and during the summer, and is open to all students enrolled in the hosting school.

Children enrolled in GE participate in at least four components daily- a healthy meal or snack, wellness time consisting of outdoor or recreation activities, academics, and enrichment clubs. The design of clubs follows the interest of the participating students and school-day curriculum, and may include art, science, technology, sports, character development activities and projects, and excursions to enhance learning and create opportunities for new experiences for youth.

Afterschool programs typically last 36 weeks during the school year, for to 2.5 hours each day. Summer programs typically last 8 weeks, for 9 hours each day. Site locations and hours vary.

In order to provide consistent and quality care for all children, once your child is accepted to the program, payment and weekly schedules are required prior to attendance. Program cost may vary from site-to-site. Please contact BHK or the site coordinator at your school for more information.
