Kids with special needs (ages 14 and under) and their siblings (ages 2-12) make new friends and enjoy all kinds of activities while their caregivers get a break. The first hour includes group activities in the gym, snacks from home and puppet Bible Stories. During the second hour, kids can choose from four different stations/rooms: music activities, table-top games/puzzles/crafts, large motor skill physical games (ie. beach balls) and a quiet sensory room. Every child with special needs has their own buddy for the evening.
