More About CrossRoads:
CrossRoads offers students a fast paced, high energy, action packed summer filled with exciting adventures, good friends, and more fun that should possibly fit in one summer. So if you’re looking to give your middle school aged student the summer of his or her dreams, you’ve come to the right place!
When developing CrossRoads almost 15 years ago, we noticed a definite need for a summer program for middle school aged students. These students are at a vital age where a positive influence in their life could mean a world of difference. They are... at a crossroad in their life. Not yet high schoolers, and definitely no longer elementary, they seek to define who they truly are. It is our goal to help with that transition, while offering a fun, and exciting summer program.
Some typical trips and activities for CrossRoads include: Dave & Buster's Tampa, Blizzard Beach, Game Time, a Tampa Bay Rays Game (or two), Vertical Ventures Indoor Rock Climbing, MOSI, Adventure Island, Splash Harbour Water Park, and even Universal Studios - Islands of Adventure. Plus CrossRoads students enjoy 3 trips or special onsite activities every week, so they are constantly having fun and keeping busy. Plus while on site they enjoy some great activity rooms as well including: Gameroom, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics), Creative Writing & Reading, Art, Video / Drama, Sports & Rec, and much more. But don’t miss out. Spaces will fill fast. Registration begins in early March.
