Allendale Children entering K-8 in the Fall

The ALEOOOP Summer Program is coordinated and directed by certified, experienced school teachers who love what they do – and it shows. They’ve created a program of engaging age-appropriate activities that make this an enjoyable, enriching summer experience. Each age group is supervised by a team consisting of a trained head counselor and assistant counselors (counselor to child ratio is based on age group). A certified registered nurse is on duty every day.

Entering grades K-3 in the fall
ALEOOOP provides a safe and supervised environment while allowing children the opportunity to make new friends and enjoy their summer experience. Age-appropriate activities include art, gym, swimming, creative expressions and nature.

Entering grades 4-8 in the fall
Activities are specifically designed for these older children In addition to daily activities, these older children also have:
Weekly electives – are special courses offered on Friday mornings.  Each senior must choose one elective per session at the time of registration (see registration).
Once per session, children go on local off-site field trips. In past years they have gone bowling, to see a movie, rock climbing, and to an indoor trampoline facility. The cost for all activities and transportation is included in the registration fee.

SWIMMING – fun, cool and safe
Once a day all children either participate in swim lessons, group swims, or play on the beach. Certified lifeguards, in addition to ALEOOOP counselors and senior staff, monitor the children. Instructional swim lessons or swim team practice are available during ALEOOOP by registering with Crestwood Lake. Parents must register on a date in June at Crestwood Lake, and for lessons, specify that their child will be taking lessons during ALEOOOP lake time.

Friday afternoon is the time to enjoy special activities and visitors such as Outragehisss Pets, a Talent Show for parents at the end of week 3, or a special viewing of the Brookside Summer Musical week 4. Olympics is the fun-filled last week of camp, with relay races and more. On the last day, everyone joins in the excitement as they compete in the final Olympic events, with pizza and a DJ!

ALEOOOP is pleased to offer several music and theater classes.  Each of these can be taken on their own, or in addition to ALEOOOP. Children in the music and theater program may not linger within the school before, after or in between their lessons.  If your child is attending ALEOOOP they will be brought to their lessons.

  • Musical  July 1 – July 20, 2018 at 1:30pm – 3:15pm
  • Instrument Lessons July 2 – July 12 and/or July 15 – July 26, 2018. Lesson time will be scheduled with you by the instructor.

ALEOOOP is a non-profit, quasi-municipal entity overseen by a volunteer board and has been serving Allendale for since 1995.

Have a great summer at ALEOOOP
