You’ve spoken, and we’ve listened! Children ages 7 through 14 (2nd through 8th grade) are now allowed in all of our clubs. Some clubs are more appropriate for a smaller subset of that range, and I have updated the descriptions to reflect that.
Older children are always welcome, and they’ll certainly learn something new, but I have to warn that they might find the activities in some of the clubs (especially Code Warriors) a little too “childish” for their liking. Then again, if they still love watching Cartoon Network, and playing with Legos, they might be totally fine! In other clubs, we might also move a bit slower, for the younger kids, but I’m working on building out some independent activities that the older (or just faster) kids can do if they finish early.
If we have enough kids enrolled in a single club, we do have the space at Pongos to split the children up according to age and ability, so please, spread the word.
And finally, I’m going to add some more clubs geared specifically towards the older kids! I was planning to wait to do this in the fall, but so many of you have asked for it now, that I’m going to get those clubs going sooner. Stay tuned for more details later this week.
