About the Huntington Family Treasures - Student/Parent Day Camp: Fourth and fifth graders and their parents learned more about family and friends while practicing how they would respond in a “sticky situation.” Families participated in group activities, separate sessions, and had one-on one time with each other. Parents shared strategies for parenting in today's world. Students discussed ways to minimize bullying. For lunch, campers created individual pizza quesadillas and fruit smoothies, as a part of a 4-H food's experience. They supported each other as they stretched their skills at the UNL Recreation Center Team Development Course northwest of Lincoln. Students provided positive encouragement as their parents conquered a climb up the tower. The grant funded event was co-sponsored by Huntington Elementary Community Learning Center, UNL Extension in Lancaster County and the Lincoln Council on Alcoholism and Drugs, Inc. The program has served twelve parents and twelve students the past two years.
“My child signed me up and I’m so glad I came. We experienced things we’ve never tried before.”
“Cooking lunch as a family was an excellent experience.”
“Our family is on a tight budget. Experiences such as the UNL Challenge Course would not be possible if Huntington did sponsor this event.”
