Age groups

At SpringHill overnight, we serve kids in grades 1-12. For every program we offer, we try to create experiences that meet kids where they are developmentally. That means that activities will be smaller for first graders and larger for ninth graders, and that curriculum will contain more pictures for younger kids and more time for reflection and discussion for older kids. 

 

 

In Michigan, our age groups and programs are:

  • 1-3 grade Storybrook
  • 3-6 grade Copper Country
  • 6-9 grade New Frontiers
  • 9-12 grade Teen Service Team (TST)* 

In Indiana, our age groups and programs are:
