Happy New Year Everyone!
Thanks for checking out the official Adventure Pals Ohio website! I am happy you’re here! I have been getting a lot of questions as to what Adventure Pals is… and with my first blog post, I hope to answer some questions you may have!
Adventure Pals is a program affiliated with Just Smile Unlimited, LLC. Just Smile Unlimited is a small business devoted to making kids and their families facing challenges smile! Families that benefit from Just Smile services have a child facing challenges and obstacles academically, socially or behaviorally.
Adventure Pals Ohio is a recreational program focused on skill development in a variety of activities. Adventure Pals just hosted their first Basketball Skills and Drills session! The basketball session ran 5 weeks, with practices every Saturday. Basketball participants worked on essential basketball skills like dribbling, shooting, and passing. Throughout these drills, participants worked one on one with a volunteer coach, then worked on applying skills with partners and a scrimmage at the end of every practice.
While kids worked on their skills, parents enjoyed watching their kids interact with other kids, and have the opportunity to connect with other families. Adventure Pals program not only offers kids the opportunity to develop skills and interests, but programs also offers parents and families the opportunity to connect with families who may share some common experiences and challenges. A focus of Just Smile is to develop a welcoming community where all families and kids feel welcomed and accepted.
I hope this brief intro helps you understand the mission and purpose of Adventure Pals and Just Smile Unlimited. You can always reach out to me by phone at 419-320-4551 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
