“Having a blast of a time with kids … they are loving it! I had one particular group last week that was quite challenging and it was harder than other sessions I had done. The staff advised that these kids did not engage with other programs they had offered and this was one of the few occasions where they had seen the kids get involved, so that is a really cool thing I got to be a part of because of this program!”
