This month we welcomed summer which included water fun, picnics, and outdoor activities! Our youth joined our sister campuses in many of these activities. We enjoyed a trip to Island Park in Mt. Pleasant for a picnic and splash pad, followed by dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings with games and treats. We have been blessed to all be together!
In addition, we observed National Disabilities Day. Each youth was assigned a disability, provided props, and then advised on details related to the disability. The youth set off to fulfill their daily activities as though they actually had the disability that they were assigned. The youth did a great job completing the trial. Everyone agreed that this was an insightful learning experience!
