Q?

What do the kids do at SCAMP?

A.

What don't they do! Every morning, the SCAMPers start with a warm up group activity (as appropriate). After this, they are separated into their respective groups. Each group does something different every day - Tuesdays are Park Days, where they go to Independence Oaks and go fishing, swimming, boating and have picnics. Other days, they go on field trips to the fire station, or the Dairy Queen, or stay at the school and do arts and crafts, music or motor skills.

Q?

I want to help with one of your events. What can I do?

A.

We need all sorts of help with our events, but the biggest help you can be is to volunteer your time on the day of the event. We have several fundraisers that we hold all year round. If there is one in particular you would like to help with, or if you would like more information on volunteering, contact us.
