Enrichment Program Activity Themes

Whether your child wants to use their creativity, expend their energy physically, or challenge their mind, after school activities are a great way to wrap up the school day and head into the evening. Apollo After School offers 19 different after school enrichment program themes and over 800 lesson plans for our instructors to utilize.

We recognize that all children are different, and with our wide variety of themes, encourage children to explore activities that they already enjoy along with providing opportunities to try out new things. Each year during the setup process, parents and school administration will choose which enrichment programs will be offered each week.

19 Different After School Enrichment Program Themes:



Arts and crafts

In Arts & Crafts Club, children will learn techniques to turn their ideas into reality under the guidance of our Apollo staff. Club members will use their creativity and imagination to make gifts, decorations, and develop their personal style.

Civics

No one just grows up and becomes a participating citizen of our American constitutional republic. Just like any right, skill, or responsibility, it takes a combination of education and practice to fully participate in our civic society. We incorporate these activities into our curriculum throughout the year. Students get practice in what it means to make and abide by their own rules, learn about state and local government, and an understanding of what it means to be a citizen in both their Apollo community and their community at large.

Young explorers

Students will learn about mysterious rainforests, towering mountains, sweltering volcanoes, exotic cultures, and many other wonders this amazing planet has to offer. Students will also learn about travel and the great explorers who gave us the maps and charts we take for granted today.

Entrepreneurship

Whether it is a cold class of lemonade, a shoveled driveway, or an iPhone, creating value for others is vital to any entrepreneur. In Apollo Enterprises, our students will learn how to think constructively about their own cool ideas for creating value, practice some of the steps for making them a reality, and learn about what it takes to keep their young businesses running.

Storytelling

While it may seem like everywhere your child turns there is a touch-screen calling to them, there is still nothing that opens up the world of imagination and possibility like a good book. By reading both quietly and out loud, Storytelling Club students will greatly improve their ability to determine meaning from the written word along with public speaking and listening skills. Watch your child discover more about their world through a book – great readers often become great thinkers!

Apollo Olympians

Zumba! Yoga! Dancing! These easy fitness activities for kids make exercise so much fun that your children won’t notice they’re working out. When you motivate children to exercise, they will be happier, healthier, and more focused!

Board games

Whether in games of chance or games of skill, board games are an incredible source of fun, social interaction, and mental activity. Students in this club will play many of their favorite board games, and even learn some new ones to teach their parents.

Computer skills

More and more, children in 4th grade and up are asked to create book reports, graphs, presentations, and charts using the newest technology. Give your child the computer skills they need so they can focus on the project rather than the mechanics. The first objective of this class is to help improve your child’s typing skills. They will use Microsoft Word to write their own memoir, autobiography or short story. Your child will then learn the basics of Microsoft Excel including formatting, graph and chart creation, and writing simple formulas.

Dance

Students will dance the afternoon away to kids bop favorites. Give your child the opportunity to get their energy out before going home for the night!

Science

Parachutes, spaceships, lasers, hadron colliders – we all know that science is a subject for the cool kids (like you, of course!). Students in Apollo Science will learn how to ask the questions that are the beginning of all scientific discoveries, how to make a hypotheses, and of course the fun part – conducting an experiment to see what happens. Through a hands-on and exciting curriculum, this club will help your child become more curious and have a deeper understanding about how the world works.

Basketball

Children will be taken through various exercises, drills, and games to improve their basketball skills. Students will learn about the history of the game of basketball, key players, and different key mental aspects of the game that players must possess in order to be successful on and off the court. This training is good for players of all levels.

Math

Math is fun, and we’re not just saying that, let us show you! Our math enrichment club uses a variety of games and hands-on activities to help improve our students understanding of this critically important subject. Our curriculum emphasizes how math relates to creativity and everyday life, whether it is the geometry of creating their personal starship or in saving money for a trip to the theme park.

Yoga

Our yoga club is a fun and exciting way to introduce yoga to students that have never tried it before, or continue to foster an interest in those that are familiar with it.

Chess

We will provide fun, informative and challenging chess lessons to students. Students will be divided into groups according to their chess experience. At the end of this session, each student will have had the chance to participate in a mini-tournament.

Apollo bricks

Everybody likes to build! Creating new objects has always been at the core of human existence, and is one of the most rewarding and fulfilling activities for the old as well as the young. In our club, your child will learn many basic building techniques and will be encouraged to put their imaginations and hands to work in making their ideas turn into reality.

Chefs

Preparing and cooking food is one of the most important and rewarding life skills a child can learn! Students will also gain experience with kitchen and equipment safety, safe food handling, and food presentation. They make even start making a nice snack for themselves after school.

Web design

Many people would be surprised if you told them that designing websites nowadays is so easy, a child can do it. Today there are so many tools available which make web design easy, kids aren’t the only ones who can do it… soon they will be teaching their parents as well! Children enrolled in this class will create their own website and will be able to show it off to their friends and family.

Soccer

Our program allows young players to learn and enjoy soccer in a positive and fun environment. We make sure students learn soccer skills and games relevant to their individual skill levels.

STEM

Pulleys, racers, and launchers, oh my! Our STEM activities combine science, technology, engineering, and math, in an environment that encourages observation, creativity, imagination, and asking questions. Students will explore how basic machines work, and learn through project and inquiry based activities.
