These bags contain nature-themed activities and crafts and are appropriate for all ages. If you would like to place an order, please visit our website at www.warrenspecialrec.org, click ‘Activity Bag’, ‘special event’, and view details. The deadline to order the ‘Wonderful World of Nature’ activity bags is July 3. See attached flyer for details. If you have already placed an order for any of our ‘WSRA on the Go’ activity bags, thank you for your purchase!
Here is the schedule of WSRA’s FREE virtual programs for the week of June 29! The Program Lead will open up the Zoom rooms approximately 5 minutes before each program, and each program will last up to 40 total minutes. Though it is not required, participants are encouraged to use the webcam through their computer, tablet or smart phone to assist with social interaction. When logging onto Zoom, we ask that participants type in their first name only (not last name). At this time, we will not be requiring families to register in advance, so participants and staff are able to attend virtual programs when able and interested and without advance notice.
MONDAY, JUNE 29
(All ages) ‘GAMES GALORE – Mind Games’ with Amber
Join your friends as we put our minds to the test. We will play a memory matching game, listen to funny mad lib stories created by us and fill in a summer crossword puzzle.
(Ages 15 & Older) ‘TALK & DINE’ with Tracy
Let's enjoy each other’s company over dinner (your choice of cuisine), similar to Walk & Dine but in the comfort of your home. If you won't be eating dinner during the time of this program, please still join us to socialize and catch up with friends! NOTE: Due to the great turnout that we have seen at this program, we will continue to use a Zoom feature called ‘breakout groups’. With this feature, we will break everyone into smaller groups to help reduce overstimulation and to allow everyone the chance to socialize more during the program.

Today we are celebrating the wonder and excitement of all things Disney! You are encouraged to dress the part.
