What do the Wild West, Snoopy, and Camp Connect have in common? Well, all were recently converged for a day of fun in the sun at @knottsberryfarm amusement park, of course!
A group of 32 siblings and 15 volunteers gathered at Promises2Kids offices before setting out. Youth immediately had a chance to pick out a new t-shirt and a goodie bag. These shirts were Peanuts themed and proudly showed off everyone’s favorite mascot, Snoopy getting up to his usual antics. This really put the group in the spirit for a big day out as they loaded onto the bus and made their way to the park.
This group was filled with thrill-seekers. Campers prioritized the most exciting and daring rides as they mapped out their day. Although the very youngest couldn’t ride every ride, they got their own thrill of laughter from watching their older sibling scream as they flew by on the roller coaster, screaming right back at them.
As the afternoon wore on, youth visited the gift shops where they were provided a gift card to pick something out for themselves. Some were feeling more sentimental and chose a plush souvenir to remember the day by, while others decided that a sweet treat would be the perfect way to cap off the day.
On the bus ride home, there was much laughter as they recalled and recounted their day with their siblings. Many also expressed their gratitude for this monthly opportunity. Your support makes these fun experiences for brothers and sisters possible, thank you!
