What Our Interns Have To Say About Their Experience: 

“The Play Days made it clear that all of the work put in by volunteers and community organizations was extremely valuable. Attending a Play Day was a truly rewarding experience after helping with the planning and preparation. It is not often that I as an adult am able to sit on the sidewalk with kids and draw with sidewalk chalk. Play is an integral part of being human and it was amazing to see people of all ages come out to enjoy being outside and playing together.”
Emily Schreiner, LPA Summer Intern 2019

 

“My experience organizing a Play Day was really rewarding, especially when I saw how multiple kids can enjoy playing without any fancy pieces of equipment. I remember seeing them decorating mud-pies with various berries and how they were really engaged with the activities, and that still puts a smile on my face when I think about it.”
