Monday Program Fun!

We closed up the KYC garden this week! We harvest a pumpkin which was exciting! Volleyball, pizza making, movie night, and team building all rounded out a fun Monday!

A Visit to Knights Pond

i Sep 29th by

We spent an afternoon at Knight’s pond, followed by shooting hoops on our newly paved parking lot! Kendyl also led the group in an activity where we listened to parts of songs and interpreted the lyrics and what the song was trying to convey to the listener. This sparked some really interesting conversations!

Fun Adventures!

i Sep 28th by

Last week KYC’ers worked very hard to help us prepare for the Chili Challenge, which we held this past Saturday! We also spent a day in Alton, hiking, swimming, and playing some games with Kendyl!

We also had such a great time visiting Camp Sentinel last week! We hiked The Ledges and then swam at Dan Hole Pond. Thanks to Camp Sentinel for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful location!

12th Annual Chili Challenge Sept 25th!

i Sep 15th by

We would love it if you joined us for our 12th Annual Chili Challenge! It is always a great time, and it’s a fun and easy way to show your support!

We will be holding the Chili Challenge in a new location this year in conjunction with Wolfeboro Parks and Recreation’s annual Fall Festival! You will be able to find us under the pavilion at Foss Field,
right by the basketball courts .

We hope to see you there!

 

Team building and more!

i Sep 15th by
Team Building! We love doing these games throughout the year for teens to work on their problem solving skills, cooperation, and to have fun! Monday was no exception. It was great to see how creatively these teens (and staff!) completed the tasks, with lots of laughter involved! Kendyl also led the group through some music and feelings exercises, where she played a few different songs on guitar and piano and we tuned in to how those songs made us feel. 🎶

Back To School!

i Sep 13th by

We hope everyone’s first week back at school is going well so far! Our school-year programs are off to a fantastic start. We’ve gotten to know each other a little better through some games (two truths and a lie), sharing sessions, and competitions! Life sized tic-tac-toe was a fun way to compete and run! And of course we’ve been playing gaga ball and nuke-em! We also have an intern from UNH this semester named Kendyl, who we have been getting to know. We are looking forward to seeing some new faces around here with the incoming 7th graders at KRMS! And we always love seeing familiar faces as well 😊

 

Last Week of Summer Programs!

i Sep 1st by
Yesterday was Giant Jenga and prepping for our Chili Challenge fundraiser! Thanks so much to our KYC teens and our volunteer Diane for all of the help! Our fundraiser will be Sept 25th at Foss Field under the pavilion from 11:30-2:30. We would love to see you there!
Recently we rode bikes to the beach, played some guitar, enjoyed a campfire, and played games! A KYC’er led us in a fun new game around the campfire, while we roasted marshmallows. It’s so great to see KYC teens take ownership and pride in leading games and activities.
