PATRIOT PREP CAMP
The Youth Service Bureau was excited to work with youth preparing for kindergarten at the Jay County Fair this year through Patriot Prep Camp activities! Over 70 youth stopped by to complete kindergarten activities including making shapes out of playdoh, making the alphabet out of pipe cleaners, looking at nature through a magnifying glass and drawing what was seen, using dice for a counting activity, and a craft that helped students write their names on something they were able to take home with them! In addition, 70 youth received premade kindergarten readiness binders filled with activities that will help them work on the alphabet, numbers, sorting, shapes, colors, and rhyming! There were 92 youth that were given reading books, kindergarten workbooks, flashcards or matching games! For those families who signed up at the Patriot prep camp for a chance to win a gift card, there were 3 randomly selected winners! These winners won a $50 Jay County Commerce gift card! The Youth Service Bureau is so thankful for The United Way of Jay County for funding the Patriot Prep Camp, and are excited to see all the new kindergarteners next year at the Patriot Prep Camp!
