The Amazing Summer ESCAPE Challenge is an innovative family engagement initiative that reduces summer leaning loss by encouraging students and families to participate in summer learning activities throughout our community, all summer long. As a member of the Association of Visitor Attractions of Forsyth County (AVA), the MOA is proud to partner with Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools and other community partners to provide thousands of local families with a free Amazing Summer ESCAPE Challenge Kit and Passport.
From June through August 2014 students and families can engage in the numerous FREE and low-cost programs, including nature walks, scavenger hunts, puppet shows and more. A complete list of partner institutions and available programs can be found online at www.wsfcs.k12.nc.us/summerescape. When students participate in programs, they will add stamps to their passports. The MOA will reward student who complete the gallery scavenger hunt with a passport stamp. As students collect more stamps, they become eligible for prize drawings to be held at the Finale and Awards Celebration in August.
Please join us at The Amazing Summer ESCAPE Challenge Kick-Off event at Hanes Mall on Saturday June 21, 2014 from 10am – 2pm. At the event, students and their families begin the summer learning adventures and find out what it takes to be entered into the prize drawings. Help us fight summer learning loss and support affordable family fun in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County.
