What do the children from Cimarron do with a day off from school? They enjoy some fun with the participants of Day Out! in Stillwater. On Friday, March 21, about a dozen children participated in songs and games along with the Day Out! attendees, around the theme Africa.
Each week there is a new Day Out! theme that brings creativity and learning to the program that takes place at FamilyMeans. Day Out! began in 2011 and quickly became a popular program for families caring for adults with chronic health issues. The four-hour programming each Friday provides a break for the attendees’ caregivers.
The children’s program in Cimarron started in 2008 and provides year-round activities for the youth. More than 150 children and teens from Cimarron participated in FamilyMeans’ youth programming in 2013.
