Outer Limits

Outer Limits

A Summer of Adventure & Fun

Entering Grades 6-8
Open to Andover residents only.

Outer Limits is where it’s at this summer, with exciting Tuesday field trips geared towards the middle school age group, daily games and activities, and fun group projects and adventures! Enjoy daily trips to Pomps Pond along with an additional weekly trip to a local hot spot to enjoy activities like hiking, biking, local shows/events, and the great outdoors. Trips to the Cormier Youth Center for fun activities like tournaments, games, cooking and art projects will also take place as well as trips to downtown Andover. Participants will also have the chance to help plan, design and help execute community events weekly, and partner up with other local departments to work on fun projects like community gardening and painting. This program is definitely on the move, but also lends time for self-directed activity, free-choice sessions, and good old summer fun! Please bring a lunch, snack, drink, bathing suit, towel and sunscreen each day. A weekly schedule will be emailed out prior to each week with specifics on daily activities, trips and events.
