4th Grade is a pivotal and transitional time for many kids. Our initiative provides a free membership for a child for a year to provide opportunities for fitness and sports, as well as be social and meet friends!

The 4GI program aims to help develop well-rounded approaches to healthy living for all 4th graders. Special programs are designed for 4th grade students specifically, and include fun activities throughout the summer such as pool parties, scavenger hunts, crafts, ice cream socials, photo/video club, garden club, giant inflatables, and more. Homework help is also included once students return to school in the fall.  It’s a time for 4th graders to have fun, stay fit, and meet friends!

We hope to provide encouragement for the whole family with this program and get everyone involved. Each 4th grade membership brings great benefits to the whole family!
