“Menlo Palooza” summer camp wrapped up the summer program with an end of summer fiesta Aug. 18. At this event, the children participated in many fun activities at the summer fiesta including a large slide jumper, mariachi photo booth, piñatas, popcorn, cotton candy and nachos for lunch. Then, on Aug. 24, the After School program was ready to welcome 75 children from four of the local Menlo Park elementary schools. It was great to see so many smiling faces returning and to welcome our new friends to the program. The MCC After School program is designed to provide quality recreational activities for working parents of school age children. A unique service that we provide allowing us to stand out is transportation service from the local schools to the Burgess Campus. The children in the program participate in a range of activities including homework club, art, cooking and science projects. Children are also escorted to recreation classes including but not limited to, dance, gymnastics, soccer, Kuk Sool and swimming. This allows parents to work full time while children still get to experience the wonderful enrichment activities provided through the Community Services Department. We look forward to a great 2017-2018 School Year. For more information, visit the current Activity Guide.
