Meerkats (entering grades 3-5)
The Meerkats's theme for this summer is "Touring the Globe." Each week, they will explore a new country through activities, cooking, language and art. Meerkats take six field trips per summer, including visits to the Delaware Rock Gym and Clementon Park & Splash World, and partner with the Dragons for games and electives every week.
