Crafting Friendships

This is a social skills group for children who are 8-12 years old. Our goal is to provide a fun, unique setting where kids will learn to enhance their social skills. Group members will learn how to positively interact with others while building self-esteem. During the summer, the farm is offering “drop-in” sessions where group members can join as their schedule permits. Each session will be centered around a craft and the group will discuss topics related to self-esteem.

Group will be Tuesday nights from 5:00-6:15 pm. Cost of Group: $30 + $5 supply fee
