Open Connections

I attribute much of the "idyllic childhood" of my youth . . . to time spent at OC.

I attribute much of the "idyllic childhood" my son and daughter experienced to the many joyful years they spent learning and growing and exploring at Open Connections! As an OC family we learned so much about the language we use with each other and how important our words are in building confidence, self-esteem, and trust in one another. As young people, Sean and Alyssa gained practical and interpersonal experiences that helped shape their interests in life. They are both grown - Alyssa's in college and Sean is beyond now. The OC memories and friendships are still very meaningful to our family.
