REEF Responsibility, Education, Exercise, Fun
Creating a strong community of learners
REEF is a dynamic aftercare program originating in Washington, DC with a long-term plan to reach all corners of the world. Our focus is to provide our students with enriching and profound experiences they would otherwise miss. Whether rarely encountered and self-confidence building skills like sewing, water cooler painting, and architecture or sports not typically considered like lacrosse, street hockey and volleyball we ensure our students are having fun, engaged, and broadening their horizons.

FRIDAY ACTIVITY SCHEDULE
Every Friday is a half day!  And that means we get started at 1:00pm and have about four hours of programming!


REEF Fridays are done summer camp style with a rotation of fun activities chosen and planned by our supervisors with student input. Our older students (third grade and up) have more time with each activity so they can dig deeper into topics and try their hands at more complicated activities.
Sample Friday Schedule:
PreK 3 & 4: Spring Sky, Bird Sticks, Flower Coloring, Movement
K & 1st:  Playground, Seasons of the Year, Early Spring Nature Walk, Movement Games (Turf)
2nd:  Paper Airplane Flying School, Knockout, (90 minutes) Shadow Puppets
3rd: Straw Roller Coaster STEM Challenge, Kandinsky Circle Mural
4th & 5th: Duckpin Bowling
FRIDAY FIELD TRIPS!
A great benefit of every Friday being a half day is that it allows enough time for field trips.  There is a field trip every Friday and it rotates through the K-5 age groups.  Pre K students go once per trimester.  Some of the many places we visit are the Smithsonian National Museums, Bladensburg Waterfront Park (pictured right), Canal Park Ice Rink, Pump it Up! and more!
