CCC Inspires Middle School
Our Middle School Program is tailored to the interests of middle schoolers.
The middle school group is capped at 13. The middle school group leader is also assisted by a Lesley Art Therapy graduate level intern and volunteers.
We are open when school is closed.
The Center is open from 2:00pm-6:00pm on regular school days, noon-6:00pm on early release days, and 7:30am-5:30pm on school vacation days.
Center Closure Dates 2016
We are open for every school holiday and vacation day in Cambridge except:
Mon. Aug 29, 2016 - Fri. Sept. 2, Center Closure
Mon. Sept. 5, 2016, Labor Day
Our Out of School Time Programs are based around three principles we call the Three C's:
Care for Self
Care for Others
Care for Community
We use the Nurtured Heart Approach designed to guide youth in the most positive way possible. Our goal is to teach children to learn from situations, to take personal responsibility and ownership of their actions, and to develop their social skills and problem solving skills.
Youth are expected to work on their homework from 3:30-4:30, and if they finish, can hang out in the Chill Room. The Cambridge Community Center is not a homework center.
We are dedicated to enrolling not only youth, but families. Group leaders update parents every week and help plan monthly Family Nights. The first Friday of every month is Family Night, where all of our families are invited to eat dinner and socialize with staff and other families. Past family nights have included decorating gingerbread houses, movie nights, and collage making!
