Pioneer Heritage

Everybody has a heritage! On Thursday at Summer Day Camp the kids had a special surprise. United Way of Utah County and Summer of Service Volunteers came and helped our youth celebrate Pioneer Day by learning a little more about the history of Utah and the story of the pioneers. To make the day even more special, we decided to discover our own personal heritage by talking about what countries and states we have come from and celebrating our diversity. The kids brought items that represent their past and some even brought tasty dishes from their countries to share with everyone! Between games and art projects the kids were having fun the whole day, and we finished it off with a delicious BBQ.

Thank you for making this day enjoyable and educational for everyone!

Starla shares a story about her great grandfather during "Show and Tell" time.

We learned and played a classic pioneer game called "The Stick Pull". The kids had a blast

trying to be the strongest!

Ceviche, enchiladas, rice, and deviled eggs are just some of the yummy dishes families brought to share along with the hot dogs and cookies!
