Hey Everyone! We had a total "SPLASH" ... I mean BLAST at Sea World last weekend. It was totally amazing. We went to Sea World in San Diego. The ride down was a long one but we had a good time listening to great music and singing along. We had a great group of clients who were all so excited to get to go and see all the marine animals and a few of us who wanted to ride some of the new super-fast rides.
When we first arrived the hotel was waiting for us. They had rolled out a red carpet and even prepared a punch and cookies reception for us. It was really sweet of them. They are always so accommodating to us when we come down. It made for a nice relaxing time at the end of a long ride down on the bus. Some of us even went down to the pool the first night to splash around and play in the water before dinner.
When we got up on Saturday everyone was so excited to get out and get to the park. WE all decided what we wanted to do before we went into Sea World. We all got to go and see and do some fun things while we were there. Most of us got the chance to watch the dolphin show and the Shamu show. This of course meant a few of us left a little bit splashed on. Some of the groups even had the chance to feed the sea lions. That was really fun, except the birds kept swooping in on the fish we were feeding them. A few of our clients got to pet the manta rays. It was really neat to feel how soft they were. All in all, the whole trip was a great experience for everyone who went. We had a truly amazing time.
We would love for you all to have the opportunity to come along and join us for these trips. There are so many fun and exciting trips planned for next year. If you are interested in knowing what we have coming up, please contact Kristine here at the UCP office. (805)543-2039 or my email Kristine@ucp-slo.org
Hi ALL, it's Mandy! I am back! Been SUPER CRAZY BUSY here at UCP with all our planning for UCP Camp Kelley Creek this Month in June!! SO Excited!
Well here is the story on the fun stuff we did LAST month. Last month we took a group of 21 people to the Dodgers game on May 19th. We spent a wonderful morning shopping at and walking around Venice Beach in Los Angeles. The clients really had a great time going into the shops and getting things they really wanted. We all saved a few dollars for the game though.. If you are a Dodgers fan you always want to show it off! So we did some much anticipated souvenir shopping at the game park as well. The game was against the AZ Cardinals... AS IF THEY HAD A CHANCE!!! Anyway.. one of the really amazing things about attending this game was FanFest! This year is the 50th year anniversary for Dodgers Stadium. So in celebration they had a lot going on at their Fan appreciation event like, autograph sessions with current and former Dodger players, Q&A sessions with Dodger players and coaches and games and dancing and so much more! Everyone along had an amazing time.. and we were all super PUMPED by the time the game started.. We ate Dodger Dogs and did the wave! All of us got up to sing and dance in the 7th inning stretch!
Needless to say I am sure, the Dodgers won the game.. It was awesome!
Hey Everyone! Mandy here, your friendly UCP Youth Services Coordinator. I will be keeping you posted on all the fun stuff we do like our out of town trips and Saturday Leisure Club events. Most recently, our group was off to the races! We spent three days in Fontana, CA and we had an amazing time down there! We went on a CIP trip to see the Royal Purple 300 NASCAR Race. It was a beautiful day for the race. Kinda seemed like sun came out just for us. I personally was cheering for #7 Danica Patrick who had to drop out half way through the race because of engine failure. However, the other Driver most of our guys seemed to be watching for was #54 Kyle Busch. It was a GREAT race! #54 was in the running for the 2nd or 3rd spot for a while for the last part of the race, but dropped back about 10 places on his last pit stop. He finished 8th in the race and the First place spot ultimately went to #18 Joey Logano. All in all not a bad day at the races. Pictures should be up soon. Until next time, keep living your life without limits! ~Mandy
