Fun Summer Youth Activities

On the youth side we have planned lots of activities. We are running Wrap Camp again this year two days a week. We will be going to the YMCA once a week and on the other day we will have activities at the wrap camp building. Also, there are two field trips planned; one to Scallywag Tag and one to Woodland Mound. We are going to play games, swim, grill out, and have lots of fun all summer.

The second annual Independence City will be held on July 31. For those of you who haven’t heard of Independence City, imagine playing a giant game of life. Youth and young adults will learn how to navigate real life situations and unforeseen challenges while having a lot of fun.  Click here for the flyer.

We are continuing the cooking class series in July. In the past we have made Stir fry, tacos and burritos, pasta, and breakfast food. The classes are designed for beginners. In addition to learning how to cook, we also teach about kitchen and prep safety.

Are you a leader? Are you interested in using your leadership skills to help plan meaningful events and trainings for other youth and help spread mental health awareness? If so, we need you to be a part of the youth advisory board.

On June 19, the FAST TRAC family group has planned a fishing event that’s open to everyone, from 6pm to 9pm at the Mt Carmel Social Club. They will be grilling out. They ask that each family brings a side dish if they can.

The Cardboard Boat Regatta is coming up again this summer and that means the FAST TRAC youth and young adults are building a boat! Last year our boat didn’t survive the float. That’s why we need your help to design and build the FAST TRAC boat this year. We will have various building times in July.

If you or your friends are interested in any of these events this summer, please contact Danny Little by email or phone 354.1307. Also I’ll keep you posted with a newsletter and calendar of youth events every month.
