While the kids are out of school, DCFOF stays busy! Summer is one of our busiest times, and we tend to see a shelter full of little ones. Living in a group home can be tough, especially for a child, so we do what we can to give them an amazing summer break!
Throughout the summer we will offer a variety of fun and exciting field trips for the kiddos to enjoy. These field trips will provide educational experiences that will help them learn life skills while exploring the world around them. Some of the field trips include:
Nash Farm- Located in Grapevine, this is a historical site where kids can learn about farming, nature, and the history of Texas. Each month Nash Farm presents a different theme centered around heritage skills visitors will be able to use in their daily lives.
Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch- Unlike regular zoos, Sharkarosa Wildlife Ranch lets their animals roam freely on the grounds. The kids will have the opportunity to experience wildlife up close while driving through this unique zoo.
Texas Discovery Gardens- There is no better place for kids to learn about snakes, spiders, and other native Texas wildlife! The kids will be treated to animal encounters, talks, crafts, and a picnic in the garden.
Along with these field trips, the shelter has other fun activities planned such as weekly park days, water play time, and movies under the stars. The kids at the DCFOF shelter will always have something exciting to do while their parent utilizes DCFOF services to get back on their feet!
In order to make these events happen and give the kiddos the best summer possible, we still need donations to cover the prices of tickets, gas, food, and water for the kids and volunteers. Your donations will allow each child to have a summer to remember. We thank you for your contributions!
