This summer the Katie A providers created two summer camps for the youth to participate in. The first group ran for 4 days and focused on movement and physical activity. The second group focused on expressive arts and taught the kids different art projects they could do at home to express themselves

AACI’s wellness coach is putting together an art group for those in the Katie A program! This group will teach the youth how they can use art as a coping skill or to express themselves. There are several fun projects planned! Stay tuned for dates and times!
