Foster Care Picnic Builds Positive Connections

The annual event allows youth, foster parents and staff to have fun in a stress-free environment.

It was warm and sunny on the afternoon of OYA’s annual foster care picnic in late July.

Perfect for cooling off with popsicles and water games — including balloon fights, cannons, and relays.

But the games and treats served a greater purpose than helping everyone stay cool: They helped youth, foster parents, and OYA staff learn trust and forge positive relationships in a stress-free environment.

OYA Foster Care hosts the relationship-building picnic every summer. To get a glimpse of the day, check out our video and photo gallery.
