We love our visits to Camp Sentinel! We went on our favorite hike up The Ledges to take in the spectacular view, then enjoyed their waterfront. @camp_sentinel
We had so much fun participating in @wolfeboro.public.library ‘s Goose chase scavenger hunt for the 2nd year in a row! The chase had us running all over town and engaging in fun and silly experiences! We are also so excited we got drawn for a gift certificate to Morrissey’s Front Porch! We’ll be sure to take the teens out for ice cream on one of these hot days! Check out all of the fun that the library is offering this summer for our teens!
Last week the KYC held our first session of @magicalyogaorg ‘s FREE Yoga Club! This 8-week program helps teens to “take control of their own minds,” through exploring what it means to be safe and grounded in our own bodies and minds. It encourages young people to “gain self-control, calm confidence, and positive mental health.” Each teen gets their own yoga mat and block, access to the video content, a deck of cards to play Yoga or Pose whenever they want (this game was so popular, they kept asking to play!). We are excited to embark on this journey and much thanks to founder, Brittany, for creating this program and making it so accessible for us!
A visit to Abenaki Tower, the Libby Museum (where staff posed for their annual photos in front of the animals that represent their home states), and a dip in Lake Winnipesaukee was a perfect summer program!
We had an absolute blast taking 15 teens to see Newsies in Portsmouth @theseacoastrep ! Parent and volunteer @karenciggyc coordinated this new-to-the-kyc outing! We had so much fun that we are already planning our next outing to see (fingers crossed) Footloose!
Our end-of-year celebration at the KYC was so fun and special this year! We thanked each of our volunteers, our supporters, and our teens! We played games, ate delicious food, and enjoyed specials desserts. Thanks to all who made this school year a great success!
We love our visits to Albee Beach and are so happy to be having some nice beach days! Albee beach is only a 1 mile bike ride/walk from the KYC. We are so lucky to have this opportunity right next door! @wolfeboroparksandrecreation
A huge thank you to @piscataqualandscaping in Wolfeboro for hosting the KYC for a Career Exploration field trip! We planted flower boxes to be used to decorate their office building (how trusting of them! ). We also learned about the field of landscaping and what a huge scope of talents and skills are used in this line of work. What a great day!
We are thrilled to be embarking on a collaborative, community art project! With a grant from @governorwentworthartscouncil we are working on a multi-panel piece of artwork, focusing on nature and sustainability. Jeanne Snowden, who is the youth and children’s librarian @wolfeboro.public.library, an artist, and former art teacher, is guiding our teens to create a cohesive piece of work. Our teens have led the way, however, from initial conversations about the theme of the work, the sketches, and the next step, painting. Other teens took a trip to @makersmillnh to build the panels, which are lightweight enough to be moved around our community, in order to share our art! We can’t wait to share the finished artwork with you here on social media, and out and about in the community!
Our teens have been up to some really cool things lately! One teen built a wooden book, and learned a lot about woodworking in the process. A big group learned about energy efficiency. Others have been puzzling and decorating furniture!
