The first day of summer camp at Wilbur Bell Park (WBP), formerly West Perrine Park, began June 14, and the last day will be August 13. In-person camp activities have resumed, and the campers are happy to be out and about outside their homes.
Our Community Service Committee plans to resume offering Life Skill Workshops. The children’s school and parents teach and practice reading, writing, and mathematics. Still, there are other life skills and coping strategies that are helpful in everyday life. Our Life Skills Workshops will help prepare the kids to have the social, emotional, and practical ability to be ready for whatever (and whoever) the world throws at them.
Here are some examples of the workshops we may offer are:
How to use a map and compass
How to avoid harmful content and individuals online
The solid handshake and why it is important
How to care for living beings
How to carry on a conversation
How to create change in their community and beyond
How to manage and save money
How to professionally write a letter or email
The importance of table etiquette and good manners
The workshop lessons are not limited to the examples above. If you have a skill you would like to share with the children, send an email to Kathy Jeffries and Maria Kesti. Please describe your workshop and preferred date, and they will coordinate with the Wilbur Bell Park staff.
The first available date for our club to offer a workshop is Wednesday, July 21, between 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. The following workshop dates are July 28, August 4, and August 11. The class size will be 12 students in the age range of 10 to 14.
