Campus Children Enjoy an Exciting Day at Discovery Place

A group of 12 Southmountain staff and much appreciated volunteers escorted 36 campus children on Tuesday, July 28, to a fun-filled day to Discovery Place in Charlotte. Discovery Place has hands-on science activities along with a variety of animals and other learning interactives. The children also got to go to the IMAX Theatre and watch a breath-taking movie about great white sharks.
Every Tuesday during the summer months when children are out of school, Southmountain staff take the children on fun outings to give the foster parents “a break” from their parenting responsibilities. Other summer outings this summer include a trip to Beanstalk Journeys, Morganton’s zip line, Steele Creek Park and Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park.
