Open Gym and Fall Classes for REACH-Troy


Classes are currently Thursdays from 2:30-4:30 pm and will begin September 18th and run through November 20th.  This will be a ten week session and is for all ages.  Registration and liability forms are available on their website at

REACH classes will be held at the First United Methodist church in Troy. 6363 Livernois Rd. Troy, MI.  (It’s on Livernois near Square Lake).

They have the space available!

Most classes are run by volunteer parents and any charges are only to cover materials.  There is a facility use fee for anyone involved in REACH sponsored classes (separate from drama).  This use fee is $20 per child per ten week session.  If you are only participating in occasional classes,  you can choose to pay per day at $3/per child per day.  This cost is to defray the cost of renting the building and is separate from drama costs and any class fees.  For example, if your child wants to participate in the cooking classes, you would pay $20 once for the ten week session for the building use fee and the materials cost for each class your child participates in.

If you would like to offer a class, please contact Amy Morris at for more information.  If you make your living doing classes of some kind and would like to use their space during the time they are there, contact Amy and they will see what they can work out.  There is no charge for parent volunteers to offer a class.  They will charge a nominal fee for the building use for someone offering a class for profit.  Both are welcome.

Open Gym

Open gym will be from 2:30-4:30 pm and is from September 18th through November 20th.  Kids can participate for the full two hours or a portion of it.  There will be adult supervision but there is usually not an organized plan.  The kids just have fun.  Some gym equipment is available.

Cooking classes

Cooking classes will be from 3:00-4:00 pm.  Costs vary by class depending on ingredients needed.

They will also offer a “Young Chatauqua” class.  Time has yet to be decided.  This class will meet weekly for ten weeks and will be for anyone who can read.  Found by Nevada Humanities in 1993, Young Chautauqua is a nationally recognized and award-winning youth program in which young scholars research and portray historical figures.  Through monologues and question-and-answer sessions, young scholars-in and out of character-engage their audience in lively discussions and provide insight into historical study.
