The students worked hard all year, excelling in the Million Minutes program and then forming their own book club. As a reward for their diligence, Kiawah Cares invited them out to Kiawah’s beautiful beach.
The students played in the water, flew kites and learned about sea life before enjoying a buffet lunch at Night Heron Park, courtesy of the Kiawah Women’s Group.
Afterward, the students got to meet some local wildlife, including a snake and baby alligator, and learn from KICA biologists.
Kiawah Cares’ Youth Beach Day is an annual event which groups local students with Kiawah Island volunteers, offering them a day of learning and recreation.
Thank you to the Kiawah Women’s Foundation for coordinating and providing a delicious lunch for students and volunteers. Another big thank you goes out to all our wonderful Kiawah Cares volunteers, who act as one-on-one chaperones during this event and keep making each year a special day for these students.
See you next year at Youth Beach Day!
