STARS Lock In
What an awesome Friday, the 13th here at the Center! On September the 13th, STARS students ages 10 and up gathered at CVI for a lock-in. The night began with lots of food and socializing. The students were split into groups and they all participated in an escape room, which took 11 steps of collaborative problem-solving for them to work through and make it out of the room. Other activities that evening included video games, Uno, pie face and a talent show at midnight.
In the wee hours of the morning, the students had an hour of girls and guys time. The girls did facials and cooked a late night snack (hamburgers and hot dogs), while the guys played hide and seek. Believe it or not . . . they still were not tired yet! The remainder of the early morning hours included some good ole’ Family Feud and lots more! Almost all of the students stayed awake and were able to indulge in pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, fish and grits before they went home. It was definitely a night full of lots of unforgettable memories!

I heard ALL about the escape room, staying up all night and eating pizza & candy from the girls: Alecia & Patrice. They giggled about it and told me stories. I absolutely love that you guys do this. I can see their confidence growing & the fact that they're making lifelong friends! They’re so proud & confident about the fact that they “belong” to an amazing group of friends who do cool stuff!!!
