Starting January 17, 2016
Camp Fire Gulf Wind, Inc. and City of Milton Parks will conduct an after-school program in Milton called Camp Fire InterACTION. The free program will be at 6625 James St., Milton FL 32570. Teens will gain valuable skills and knowledge, improve their communication skills and make a difference in their community; all while doing fun, hands-on activities and meeting new people. The research-based program can register 30 teens and is provided by a New York Life grant.
“Middle school is an emotionally, social, and physically turbulent time for youth,” said Camp Fire’s Santa Rosa District Director Tammy Byrer. “InterACTION will help them gain the key skills needed to navigate the many new situations and friendships while increasing their independence.”
Byrer said that Camp Fire’s promise to help youth lift their voice and change the world around them is the core of InterACTION. Trained, caring adults will work with the teens to help find their inner passions and unique talents in an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion. This is done with shared projects, activities, and discussion.
“Good communication skills are key to development of young people,” Byrer said. “Camp Fire InterACTION teaches middle school youth about effective communication, a key skill to help them succeed now and in the future.”
The club will meet Mondays through Thursdays, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Parents can find out how to register by calling Tammy Byrer at 850-564-1649
or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a limit of 30 youth for this program, so call now!
