Children’s Summer Recreation Testimonials

“I have been a volunteer at the Summer Rec Program with Balance for three
years now, and I have loved every second of it! I am so grateful to have found
this amazing organization that has given me the opportunity to meet and spend
time with so many amazing kids that have made such an impact on me. Every
day with these kids is filled with fun activities, big hugs, huge smiles, and of
course lots of laughs. I would not want to spend my summer doing anything
else. I feel so lucky to have gotten the chance to hang out with the most
incredible kids everyday through this program and there’s no doubt that I will be
back again next year!”


“Each day at the end of Summer Rec, I would be so tired yet already excited for the next day! It was such a privilege to hang out with a cool bunch of kids that had such amazing talents, imagination and curiosity. Being with them reminded me how important it was to never be too serious and to just have fun. I will never forget the memories I have made through all of the fun activities we did, and I am already looking forward to next summer!”


“The Balance Summer Rec Program is always my favorite part of summer! I
have volunteered for the last three summers and each year is better than the
next. The trips we go on are unique and exciting! Some of my favorite places we
go at the Milwaukee Zoo, Blue Harbor and the Sheboygan Quarry. My favorite
part of volunteering is seeing the smiles on the kids’ faces each day. I have built
many strong relationships in this program and made lifelong friends
Volunteering has helped me grow a lot as an individual and as a future teacher.
I would highly recommend volunteering at Summer Rec for a fun and rewarding
