Kids In The Spotlight -5-day family program

This is a unique and popular 5-day family program in its 26th year at The Haven Institute. Created by Denise Goldbeck, Kids In The Spotlight (KITS) involves children, youth, and parents. Children learn social development and self-discovery; youth undergo Youth Leadership Training; and parents attend informational sessions. Lessons like boundaries, communication, sibling relationships, parent-child relationships, and self-responsibility, are just some of the few lessons taught. The lessons are subtle -- delivered through the effort of a multi-age group of children as they cooperate to produce and perform a musical show at the end of the 5 day program.

Children learn:
• Self understanding
• Mutual cooperation and respect
• Social understanding
• Leadership skills
• How to support others
• How to contribute to the success of the group

Parents and caregivers learn:
• Child development (their own and their children's)
• The developmental aspects of the program

Format: The program combines a variety of group exercises, activities and discussions where children explore moral lessons, their own behaviours, and the behaviours of others in a non-judgmental setting. Use is made of theatre, music, dance, drama, and stage creation to facilitate group cooperation and learning. Older children support younger children in dances, songs, and dramatic scenes. Youth Interns assist with the program and act as role models for younger participants.
