As the Loft closes for break and we prepare for summer programming, we're happy to reflect on the successes of our newest program's first season. In the last month 7th graders in I Know ME have been exploring our own backyard with their first overnight trip to the UMaine 4-H Camp & Learning Center at Tanglewood and an end of the year cookout at Swan Lake. These "close-to-home" adventures aim to develop the skills and confidence needed to prepare the kids for future trips, including a trip to the Maine Wild Blueberry Fesitval this summer!
We'd like to share with you the I Know ME program in action with a photo journey below! Keep an eye out for even more from the I Know ME cohort this summer.
