Puddle Jumpers

NEW Sunday Availability! Check Dates below

        Puddle Jumpers 

Puddle Jumpers is a group-based supportive care program for children aged 5 to 13. Each class has therapeutic lesson goals to help children who have a parent or caregiver going through cancer. We talk about really tough stuff and then engage in a fun, age appropriate themed activity that helps improve their understanding of cancer and addresses both their informational and emotional support needs.

Additional Materials: Markers, pencil crayons, paper, scissors, tape

Designed for: children age 5 to 13.
