“This is a great opportunity for teens and their parents to meet some of the staff, get a tour of the facility, and ask questions about B.L.O.C.K programs. Over the years, participants have made great friends, built their confidence, shared and made great memories in a safe environment.” said Laura Mortier, Recreation Specialist.
