Lafayette Homestay Adventure Day Needs Volunteers


An organization called Nature’s journey for mental health organizes a great day for host families in Acadiana.

The Homestay Adventure Day gives families with adopted children the opportunity to go on adventures together here in Lafayette.

The event will take place November 19 at the Acadiana Park Nature Station, and participating families will enjoy a great hike, scavenger hunt, bioactive adventure day, lunch, hunts treasure, a bioactive vivarium/terrarium course and an easy-to-teach course. to go on day hikes.

The need for foster families in Acadiana is great, as many children need a stable home while waiting for a permanent home. Through no fault of their own, these children have had to leave situations that many of us cannot even imagine. This is an opportunity for foster children and those who care for them to bond and experience new adventures.

The event still needs volunteers to tend to things like the entrance table and registration area.

They also need tables with tablecloths and chairs, glue sticks, paints, brushes, mason jars, and someone to help organize the scavenger hunt.

The event begins with registration at 10 a.m. From there, families can embark on the arts and crafts project. At 10:30 a.m., the first hike will begin as a guide takes families through the trails of the Acadiana Park Nature Station.
