This two hour program will combine developmentally appropriate, child-directed and process-based activities that foster 21st century skills like creativity, collaboration and communication, with opportunities for outdoor exploration and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning. Each class in the 4-week series will feature novel materials and tools.

Magic and stage presence is a simple and fun way for children to learn magic. The participants of this class will learn 12 magic tricks. In addition to magic secrets they will be instructed on how to have stage presence and confidence while performing these amazing magic illusions.

When the children become more confident in performing and public speaking they become more confident in life.

Ross Recreation offers Junior Tennis for kids between the ages of 5-14. Tennis in Marin coaches in conjunction with the USTA have now been using modified tennis balls, court sizes, and smaller rackets with great success. These new changes have allowed kids to rally and play real tennis points at an early age. They have set up a system where different colored balls are used at corre- sponding age levels to allow more of a natural progression toward learning the sport of tennis. When kids are successful they are having fun, and when they are having fun, they are usually suc- cessful. It works both ways.
Creative classes of all types: sewing, wheel throwing & more.
