taking field trips and spending time with friends. Intermediate age students will
attend Collins House and days will be focused on exploring future career options
and helping engage youth in volunteerism. Program will run from 7:30 am - 5:30
pm.  Each student should bring a water bottle and sack lunch, wear socks and gym
shoes, and bring warm clothes to skate!  Afternoon snacks will be provided.
