Kids In The Valley Adventuring (KIVA) KIVA Kids in the Valley Adventuring
KIVA is a free monthly family nature club for families in the Roanoke Valley. KIVA focuses on three  goals: Play, Nature Education and Volunteerism. KIVA events showcase a different park each month, provide special speakers, and point families to local volunteer efforts. The meetings are always FREE. No childcare is ever provided, instead we encourage grown ups to “come prepared to make a memory with your child(ren)”. KIVA also offers a free monthly newsletter which provides families with information about upcoming fun, family events around the area, as well as details about nature themed books, music, games.  Facebook logo

Scouting
Scouting is about building character, developing personal fitness, and learning leadership and citizenship. These goals are achieved in the outdoors. The adventure of hiking, camping, swimming, boating, high-adventure challenges, and touring is woven into the program. What Scouting wants to do, is get kids into the outdoors and experience life. There are three levels of Scouting: Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Venturing. BoyScoutFacebooklogo

About 69% of women executives and leaders have participated in Girl Scouts. Girl Scouting is open to all girls between the grades of kindergarten and 12th grade. GirlScoutsRoanokefacebooklogo

Girl Scouts has designed age – appropriate programs that meet the needs of today’s girls. The goals of Girl Scout programs are to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. The model is based on three principles:

  • Girls discover their world and their own potential and strengthen their values
  • Girls connect with others through caring relationships and team building
  • Girls become empowered to take action and be advocates for themselves and others
