Win a $50 Gift Card and help Celebrate Afterschool! Outdoors in the Garden State!

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

Celebrate Afterschool! Outdoors in the Garden State is an annual celebration of all that the Garden State has to offer!  Each year, NJSACC encourages afterschool programs to get outside and enjoy, explore, and play.

NJSACC has created a resource booklet for providers that lists easy, inexpensive activities that can connect children with nature in categories like Trees and Leaves and Nature Art. There are lists of field trips and enrichment program resources for providers as well as nature fun facts and nature experiments that can be done in only a few minutes.

Many programs decide to organize larger events to involve families and the community. NJSACC developed an Event Planning kit to guide afterschool programs on how to Celebrate Afterschool with a sample Press release and invitation letters for community leaders and celebration ideas.

New for 2014!  We want to know how YOUR program Celebrates Afterschool!

This year, NJSACC is sponsoring two exciting contests using social media!
