Dear Voyager Families,
I hope everyone got a chance to enjoy our five-minute winter storm. While we cannot control the weather, at least we can enjoy it. The winter blues break was just that at Voyager as we enjoyed the Montrose Rec Center, snowshoeing, and bowling among other things.
Basecamp, the free teen center, is available for all youth aged 12 and up or in/entering seventh grade. We are excited to announce Adventure Wednesdays running all summer, made possible by a grant from the National Recreation Foundation.
We are busy planning a multitude of adventures for the summer enrichment calendar by bringing back favorites and exploring new concepts. It will be posted on the website soon. The cost of a full day at Voyager is $40 and a full week (Monday through Thursday) is $150. If you register and pay before May 1st, you receive a 15% discount. If you register and pay the month prior to the month of use, you receive a 10% discount. The updated parent handbook is available on the website for more information. We are also excited to announce a collaboration with Western Slope Rides in providing transportation for elementary kids from Ouray to attend summer enrichment, thanks to the Daniels Fund.
And we are thrilled to bring Levi Krey on board as a Program Site Leader. Levi is settling in nicely to the area bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience working with kids. He will be at Voyager bringing a sense of adventure and wonder with our older summer enrichment group.
The after-school calendar is online. Voyager picks up the kids from school and uses the sidewalk along Sherman Street to Cora, Monday through Thursday after school, including the 1:00 release days on Wednesday the 14th and Thursday the 15th. The Free Teen Center is also open.
Due to historically small numbers over Spring Break, Voyager will be closed April 2nd through April 6th. We will be open for a full day Monday, April 9th.
Communities that Care Coalition is in full swing as we move into the fourth phase—implementation. CTC is an evolving support system for Ouray County youth, that provides opportunities for active involvement in promoting a healthy environment for themselves and others, assisting them in reaching their full potential as competent, compassionate, responsible, and resilient adults. Check the website for more information.
