Between the Bells

Weeklong intensive social groups for all ages.

About Between the Bells

Between the Bells is The Hangout Spot’s series of weeklong intensive social skills programming that is designed to provide supplemental developmental opportunities for our learners during windows when school is not in session.

The curriculum design of Between the Bells is structured to complement and scaffold with the progress our enrolled learners are already making while also offering our new friends the opportunity to quickly raise and expand their social games!

Key Benefits Include

Between the Bells
  • Building social skills proficiency and fluency delivered through highly targeted, weeklong intensive 2-hour sessions that provide immediate positive impacts
  • Offering deep-dive solutions that address critical gaps and allow for acute focus on specific topical areas and skill sets that are discernibly different from The Hangout Spot’s standard offerings
  • Encouraging bonding and friendship-making opportunities that can only come from spending concentrated time (10 hours) with peers over 5 consecutive days
  • Realizing parents’ desire to maximize the downtime value of their children’s school breaks and vacations
