Spring Forward gathers the Quad Cities' summer campers and community partners at the TaxSlayer Center to celebrate summer learning during National Summer Learning Week. This event, sponsored by John Deere, is the single largest summer learning in celebration in Iowa and Illinois!

More than one thousand children enrolled in summer camps in the Quad Cities gather for this event, which includes a short concert by the River Music Experience Band followed by time on the center floor with activities provided by 30 partner organizations. Participating camps include: Spring Forward, Boys and Girls Club of the Mississippi Valley, Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center, The Salvation Army, Skip-A-Long, Two Rivers YMCA, Camp Excel, and Camp Re-Imagine.
