Our participants enjoy a pleasant base site where we have lots of room to spread out and participate in a wide variety of activities.  While on campus, we enjoy educational classes, individual and small group study time, arts and crafts, music, games, reading, yoga, singing, discussion groups, drama classes, etc.  We tackle important "social-emotional" lessons, such as how to be a good friend, how to help each other and work as a team, how to handle life's challenges with grace, and how to respect and celebrate each other's differences.  We also work on improving our activities of daily living (ADLs) and life skills, such as learning and practicing good hygiene, and planning and cooking a meal.

Additionally, we all venture out into the community every day so we can spread our unique brand of sunshine throughout Wheat Ridge and the Denver metro area. We have developed some pretty cool, long-lasting community partnerships.  These partnerships enable us to engage in our community in interesting ways.  While in the community, we take part in educational, safety, and volunteer activities.  We also visit various sites so we may increase our civic engagement, and we practice riding public transportation.  We make sure that our participants get fresh air and exercise every day.  We take nature hikes, enjoy outdoor sports, go swimming and bowling, take cycling and Tai Chi classes at the YMCA, etc.  We have two gardens at the Delva Community Garden in Arvada, which we tend to from seed to harvest. We keep our minds active and healthy by visiting interesting places and learning lots of new things.  We go to museums, do research at the library, take tours at local factories and companies, and much, much more.  In fact, we make everything we do an educational adventure, even a day at the park includes planned activities as well as beneficial vestibular activities like swinging.

We are always looking for new and exciting experiences.  If you have any fun ideas, just let us know!
