Summer Stretch 2018

Youth entering grades 6-8 can have some summer fun!

Our Lady of the Black Hills is teaming up with Blessed Sacrament Church in Rapid City for the Summer Stretch community service and recreation program. We will meet on Wednesdays 8:15 AM to 3:30 PM at Blessed Sacrament. Friends are welcome to participate and kids older than 9th grade are welcome to participate as team leaders. Registration forms are available in the gathering space or online.

What is Summer Stretch? Summer Stretch is a community service and recreation program done in conjunction with parishes around the city. In the morning we dive into community service work including Feeding South Dakota and Black Hills Works. Then after a strong morning of service, we relax with a recreational activity ranging from bowling to Jump Craze. The program concludes with an overnight camp out. Come and be a part of the action! The program begins and ends at Blessed Sacrament Church. Check-in begins at 8:15 a.m., and pick up is at 3:30 p.m. at Blessed Sacrament. A parent or guardian must accompany the participant inside to check-in, and students are responsible for bring their own lunch each week. Some service sights require closed-toed shoes and jeans to be worn, so please have your students dress accordingly. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to your parish representative with any questions you may have! We look forward to diving into this summer of service and fellowship with you! The registration deadline is Friday, June 4th, 2021.  

Grades: Incoming 6th – 8th graders
