All Kinds of News for October 07, 2020
Seven Stars, a residential treatment center and assessment program for teens ages 13-17 struggling with neurodevelopmental challenges is getting ready to kick off for an exciting October full of on-campus activities with students. Team Director Sara Hair shares about some of these plans. “We are eager to dive in to fall and have creatively prepared some fun and interactive activities. I think the kids will really enjoy what we have in store.”
First on the list is Harry Potter week. “The kids will be crafting and making their own owls, magic wands, and enjoying some special Harry Potter themed treats such as chocolate frogs,” says Sara. “To top it off, each student will receive their own ticket to hop aboard a train that will take us to an outdoor train museum. We are intentionally planning to incorporate some life skills in the middle of this entertaining week. The kids will actually earn their way to purchase the train tickets and experience a different way of transportation through the train ride. We are very excited about these plans!”
Next up on the list is a corn maze, costume shopping, dorm decorating contest, science projects, and a field day with Halloween-inspired games. “The corn maze will be a great way to learn and practice a sense of direction,” Sara explains. “We plan to take the kiddos shopping for their own costumes. With this activity, each student will have a budget and opportunity to create their own costume design. Then, for the Halloween field day, we have games that include mummy wrapping, ring toss, bean bag games, and more.”
Finally, the month will close with a big Halloween party. The student cafe will host the campus-wide party with some amazingly spooky treats. Staff and students will trick or treat through the hallways. “The campus really gets into the festivities and the students enjoy the excitement,” says Sara. Needless to say, Seven Stars is thrilled to kick start the fall season!
