This week our youth learned how to use different coping skills to deal with stress and other big emotions that come in life. They were introduced to new hobbies in nature, they let out their energy by participating in a boxing class, they learned how to use breathing techniques to be calm, and they used their senses to be present in their environment.
PROGRAM DETAIL FOR THIS WEEK:
M-Th 12:30 -4 PM 1st-8th grade
Location: Drop off/Pick up at YFC
This week our youth spent their time exploring different forms of movement. Our youth used their hands to quickly carry out challenges, and they used their feet to navigate through different obstacles. These movements also helped them create relationships throughout the community with McHenry's own police officers, Officer Bob and Officer Martinez. We thank officers for the valuable time spent with our youth week of the Summer Program.
Our youth spent this week planting something special near YFC's roots at YFC Community Garden and were part of creating a beautiful pollinator garden for the community to enjoy for years to come. We want to thank the wonderful organizations and inspiring community members who collaborated in programming this week;
McHenry County Conservation District, Small Waters Education, Friends of Hackmatack National Wildlife Refuge, Land Conservancy of McHenry County, Environmental Defenders of McHenry County
