Five Willowbrook youth spent an afternoon baking delicious cookies and brownies. The group enjoyed splashing around and swimming at Lake Paran. The garden interns at Bennington College’s Purple Carrot Farm led a day of planting seeds, learning about the garden, and picking some beans. Craft Day was a hit with a group of Willowbrook youth, who painted with watercolors, learned to make lanyards, and tie-dyed t-shirts! At the End of Summer Celebration, the group played games outside before venturing inside for some delicious treats and more craft activities, including making animal key chains and designing buttons.
