Who’s up for an adventure?
All of the Orange County Day Community Opportunity Program sites met at the Bronx Zoo for a group adventure! They all certainly got their exercise- the Bronx Zoo is the largest metropolitan zoo in the United States with 265 acres to explore and more than 10,000 animals to see. While they didn’t get up and close with all the animals, it wasn’t for lack of trying. The program manager said, “Some of our participants are animal experts and they had a blast seeing animals they learned about on TV and sharing their knowledge with their peers.”
Speaking of adventures, four of the Orange County teams spent the day at Six Flags, Great Adventure where there was something for everyone. Some of their fearless individuals eagerly strapped themselves into the biggest roller coasters, others challenged themselves to try some new rides and some chose to keep their feet on the ground cheering on the activities of their friends. The groups played arcade games and enjoyed each other’s company all day. Everyone agreed that it was a long day but it was a GREAT one!
