In October 2013, families with children of all ages came to OSD for a weekend of workshops and activities at no cost to them. OSD’s dietary staff prepared delicious meals for families who were housed in OSD’s dormitories. Parents really enjoyed being able to relax, to eat without doing all the chores, and to get to know other parents. A full schedule of workshops for parents rounded out the weekend.
During the workshops, the children were divided into age groups for supervised activities including swimming, captioned movies, and a bouncy house. Before leaving, families participated in team-building activities, a family photo opportunity, an art contest, and a thrilling scavenger hunt.
It is hoped that this program will become an annual event.
