Outside the Box After School Program at the Sequoia Park Zoo

Out of the Box CheckersWhere youth are encouraged to think, learn and play outside the box!

Think Outside the Box

We believe in the importance of leadership and mentoring tomorrow's leaders. This program aims to create a solid foundation that will have a long-lasting impact on the lives of the youth in our community. No one child fits into a single labeled check box, which is why Eureka Recreation is proud to provide a program where youth are celebrated for their individuality. From the minute youth walk through the doors of our program, they will feel safe to be exactly who they are, have their voices heard, and feel a sense of belonging. With character-building woven into each activity, youth will develop their personal growth while learning to positively communicate and build respectful relationships with others.

While there is no shortage of fun in this program, we place equal emphasis on providing educational experiences that foster leadership skills. This leadership-focused program will teach youth to discover their potential, unearth the learning value in challenges, set goals, and have the confidence to pursue them.

Play Outside the Box

This ain't your daddy's blacktop. Whether it be the Sequoia Park Zoo or the majestic redwood forest in our backyard, our after school program location offers a plethora of natural wonders where youth have the opportunity to participate in hands-on learning experiences that are crafted to deepen their connection to the outside world.
