STAYCATION AROUND THE WORLD STARTS NEXT WEEK

Thanks to a grant from the Oregon Community Foundation, The Arc has put together new activity kits for families to enjoy at home this summer.

Each week, families will receive a new   Staycation Around the World   kit loaded with fun activities, food and crafts related to different countries. Children will learn about the cultures of Peru, Ireland, Italy, Egypt, Japan and India during their six-week staycation!

Families don't need a physical kit to participate. Simply check out Staycation Around the World on The Arc website, where all the crafts, activities and information will be shared so families can pick and choose what they want to do at home. Check out the first Staycation Destination: Ireland !
