An Intergenerational Spring Fling for All Seasons of Life

Trinity Village to Host Kid Connection for Spring Break Activities

Spring fever is defined as a feeling of restlessness and excitement at the beginning of spring. We are just a few days past the first day of spring and kids are feeling it. Teachers are definitely feeling it. We’re all feeling it! When the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and kids are getting antsy, what’s a school to do? Enter the ever anticipated, forever loved, annual reprieve from the books known as spring break.

Next week, local schools will put down their pencils, close their text books, and have some time off for spring break. Many families will head further south to warm beaches, while more will stick around so Mom and Dad can go to work. For those landlocked kids not spending the days of next week building sand castles and feeding their sandwich crusts to seagulls, it may seem like a real bummer to stay in town for spring break. But for the students signed up for Kid Connection’s spring break camp, this will not be the case!

While spring break is typically reserved for the young’uns, Kid Connection has collaborated with Trinity Village retirement residence for its annual Spring Fling celebration. On Wednesday, March 30th Trinity Village will serve as host site for Kid Connection’s Spring Fling and all the festivities that come along with it. That’s right. Our annual Spring Fling will be an intergenerational mixer! Kid Connection students and residents of Trinity Village will enjoy games, activities, and bounce houses. In addition to our typical Spring Fling festivities, students will be given the opportunity to brush up on their botany skills and complete a service project by planting a garden at Trinity Village.

The fun isn’t limited to Wednesday’s Spring Fling. Students will go to the movies and Hickory Dickory Dock and will visit residents of Trinity Village for fun and crafts Tuesday and Thursday. Trinity Village residents have also been invited to join Kid Connection at the movies for an intergenerational field trip. Kids and kids-at-heart will all have a great time with one another and Kid Connection is honored to share spring break with residents of Trinity Village.
