CONSTITUTION KIDS CLUB
CONSTITUTION KIDS CLUB
Come earn your Junior Constitutionalist Certificate with other children in your community!
Join us as we dive into U.S. history and American government using hands-on activities, games, simulations, art projects, food, fieldtrips, guest speakers and MORE!
Through fun and engaging educational activities every week, each child can earn pins and patches on their way to obtaining their Junior Constitutionalist Certificate.
(The Junior Constitutionalist Certificate will be issued to each child who completes all three sessions. However, children can also join in for only one or two sessions if they desire. They will still earn the pins and/or patches associated with that session's achievements, but all three sessions must be completed in order to earn the Junior Constitutionalist Certificate.)
The Constitution Kids Club is currently designed for children ages 7 to 13 years old.
We meet weekly on Wednesday 4pm-5pm OR Friday 11am-12pm.
(Please note: If this time does not work well for you and you'd still like to participate, please send a private message to us and let us know which day and time works best for you. If there is enough interest, we may be able to add an additional meeting time.)
We will meet at one of the leaders' homes in the Redhawk area of Temecula on Wednesdays and central Temecula on Fridays. (Exact address will be given upon registration.)
