Big and Little Trainings


7th Bi-Annual Training at Camp O'Bannon

Our 7th training we help at Camp O'Bannon on September 16, 2017! This time we looked at prescription medications- what they are and how we can be safe around them. We even had Officer Trent with the Newark Police Department stop by to talk with us, answer some questions, and show off his police cruiser! Our Bigs also had the chance to talk with each other about some of their experiences as mentors and brainstorm new ways to make their matches even more amazing.

Thank you Camp O'Bannon and Officer Trent for helping to make this another awesome and successful Big and Little Training!

6th Bi-Annual Training at the Dawes Arboretum

On May 6th, 2017 matches headed out to the Dawes Arboretum where they participated in a walk through woods and wetlands. They learned about wildlife and how to look for clues that they leave behind that can tell you about their whereabouts. The group got to see some geese, a red tailed hawk, blue birds, and red winged blackbirds!

Everyone said that they felt this was a great learning experience and that they are more inclined to get outdoors to explore with their Littles now.

A BIG thanks to Dawes Arboretum, Nancy our tour guide, and Lee’s Chicken (for some scrumptious food!)!
