After-School Programs in Durango

San Juan Science Ramblers, K-5

Too much screen time? Get your kids outside with SJMA’s new after-school program, the San Juan Science Ramblers. Kids, grades K-5, will be led on after school science- based hiking adventures with our amazing education staff and volunteers. This is a great option for kids who love nature and science. Each month will have a theme focused on outdoor exploration and learning.

During the month of December, we will be offering only one session, 3 weeks long, for “Remote Learners” due to the closures of all the District 9r schools.

COVID Modifications:

  • Maximum participants is 10.
  • Participants will be asked to maintain 6 ft. of social distancing when reasonable, wear face-masks, and hand-wash/sanitize frequently
  • No shared food or communal eating spaces
  • Families will be expected to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms
