  • Adventure Sports - Paddle-Boarding Enrichment Program

    Registration closed.

    Paddle-boarding is a water sport in which participants are propelled by a swimming motion using their arms while lying or kneeling on a paddleboard or surfboard in the ocean or other body of water. A derivative of paddle-boarding is stand-up paddle-boarding also called stand-up paddle surfing.  You can do all kinds of activities on a stand-up paddle board, like yoga, fishing, racing, and touring. Stand-up paddle-boarding offers many of the perks of kayaking but with a much better vantage point than a kayak. Paddleboarding offers total body physical exercise and mental relaxation."

  • PTS Chess Enrichment Program

    Registration Closed
    Chess develops the ability to see from someone else's perspective. Through this course, chess players learn to anticipate an opponent's next moves, predict what another person will do next, and develop the ability to adopt another person's perspective.  Regular practice can improve your cognitive function, helping you to become more mentally sharp and alert.  Studies have
    shown that chess players have better memory, attention span, and overall brain function than those who do not play.
