After-School Programs in Durango

San Juan Science Ramblers

Get your kids outside with SJMA’s after-school program, the San Juan Science Ramblers.

Kids, grades 1 – 6, will be led on after school science- based hiking adventures with our amazing education staff and volunteers. Fall programming will include month-long sessions in September and October. Spring programming will include month-long sessions in April and May. The number of kids will be limited to 13 per session. This a great option for kids who love nature and science. Each month will have a theme focused on outdoor exploration and learning.

COVID Modifications

  • Participants will be asked to social distance when reasonable, wear face-masks during van rides and when social distancing is not possible, and hand-wash/sanitize frequently
  • No shared food or communal eating spaces
  • Families will be expected to self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms
  • We ask that parents please have conversations with their kids about social distancing, using the restroom outside, and the expectation of long(ish) periods of physical activity
  • SJMA will transport the campers each day but we ask that they wear masks for the entire car ride (Parents can meet us if you would prefer to transport  your child)
  • We strongly encourage COVID vaccinations to help keep our staff and other campers safe
