A Splash into Summer

Summer programming began with a splash at MCH!

While some of our young people are attending morning summer school at our Waco campus charter school, our other residents are volunteering their time to a variety of community service projects around Waco. And the afternoons are filled with summer fun like swimming at our Waco campus pool and field trips to local parks.

Four of our youth from the Waco campus are in Mt. Pleasant, Texas serving with Central Texas Conference Youth Missions by building wheelchair ramps, cleaning up parks and painting and repairing houses for those in need. We also have four youth from our Waxahachie campus who are currently in Louisiana serving on a mission trip with the First United Methodist Church of Waxahachie. Way to serve, MCH! Look for mission trip pictures in upcoming posts.

Here are some pictures of youth from the campus and Boys Ranch taking advantage of the hot weather to bask in the sun and spend time at the pool.

Some boys from the Ranch spent time at Cameron Park enjoying fishing and playing catch and disc golf with staff.

Respond with a Comment: If you are an MCH employee, what is one exciting summer adventure your residents are looking forward to enjoying?
