COVID-19 has had everyone scrambling to keep children entertained while quarantined at home, which has also been true for residents of MVCFS. With many of their off campus visits postponed for the foreseeable future, staff have had to come up with fun alternatives that keep residents entertained while safely on campus.
These activities include fun games such as corn hole, ladderball, giant yard games, minocular hide and seek, human battleship and flag football, as well as fun outdoor adventures for Ranch residents including camping and kayaking. In addition to keeping everyone safe, these activities are teaching our residents–and staff alike–important skills such as resilience, flexibility and adaptability.
Unfortunately, the MVCFS has had to alter or cancel a few of our famous, fun spring gatherings. Promotion Ceremony has been scheduled as a quarantine-safe celebration on the 19th of June, during which only students who live in houses together will gather, and Barn Day this spring has been canceled.
