- As you can see, we have a variety of activities planned for the upcoming season. Some of these activities are things we haven’t done before, some are activities that have been done before and participants enjoyed them so much we just had to do them again. Feel free to reach out with any new activities that we have not done before. We are always looking for new things to try!


- As always, if you are signed up for an activity and for some reason need to cancel, please contact the main office or the S/R phone (610-506-6723) to notify someone that you will not be attending. S/R Staff check the general voicemail at the office and will have the S/R phone on them at all times while working activities. If you have any questions about this, call or email Jaimee Scott at jscott@helpinghandsinc.com.
