Artifact Adventure

A rather new experience at JCPRD Trailwood (due to a lack of a playground ) At Artifact Adventure they practice environmental literacy. They get their hands dirty by creating artifacts and they even have their own bartering system and tribes. They even made their own fire out of dry leaves and a magnifying glass (supervised, of course).

Program Director: Kelly Griffin

Mission Statement: Developing health and happiness in our community's children through safe, diverse, and character-building experiences.

This will be my third year at Trailwood with JCPRD! I Absolutely love my job and I love these kiddos! I love that I get to teach them about kindness, tolerance and acceptance and my personal favorite....gratitude and giving back to others! I have worked with kiddos since I was one many.... many years ago. I earned a Master's Degree in Elementary Education In 2011 at Rockhurst University. My undergrad was at K-State so Go Cats! On the side I worked in animal rescue and I eat a lot of spicy foods ;-) looking forward to a great school year!
