Cardinal Kids Club (CKC) after-school program recently hosted an open-house event to showcase some of activities that kids engage in during their time at CKC.
On Wednesday, Oct. 30, community members and parents were invited to CKC for an afternoon of playing cardboard arcade games that some of the kids had created and built.
The concept for the cardboard arcade games came about as part of the “club” activities that kids take part in each week at CKC. The clubs are month-long activities that take place one day per week and allow kids to delve into projects and activities that are based on student-interest and STEM-driven concepts.
A few of the community groups visiting CKC for the open-house included members from the Albion Education Foundation, the Boone County Foundation Fund, and the Albion Masonic Lodge, which recently disbanded and left an educational endowment with the Albion Education Foundation.
