Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL)

Summer Adventures in Learning (SAIL) is a weeklong program that offers refresher classes in reading, writing, and math, as well as enrichment classes such as chess, computers, art, science, music, and much more! By offering four different class times throughout the day, SAIL gives you the ability to choose classes that not only fit your child’s needs and interests, but your schedule as well. Your child can take one or two classes, or attend the whole day by taking four classes and staying for lunch and recess*.

For students entering grades 1-7

Session June 26-30

Location Crossroads Park Elementary, 1050 50th Street, West Des Moines
