Corporate Kids Events, a Nationwide and International event childcare company, collaborated with Nebraska Farm Bureau to hold the Young Farmers and Ranchers 2021 Conference in Kearney. This is one of several conferences Corporate Kids Events has held for the organization over the years.
The Nebraska Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Conference aims to equip farmers, ranchers and agribusiness professionals aged 18-35 develop leadership and networking skills, as well as coming together as a whole to share information and experiences. Each conference features innovative tours, dynamic speakers, and several breakout sessions. The NFB has been conducting these meetings for over 50 years! It’s a great opportunity to for the younger generation of farmers to learn and grow their businesses.
Corporate Kids Events gave NFB the opportunity for families to bring their children to the 2 –day Conference. The kids were taken to another part of the building to have their own fun kids event childcare while the parents participated in the Young Farmers and Ranchers Conference. With concerns of COVID-19 Corporate Kids and the NFB took special care ensure everyone’s safety including, mandatory temperature checks upon entry, mandatory mask wearing, social distancing as well, Corporate Kids Events provided hand sanitizer, cleaning products and gloves to keep surfaces, toys and supplies disinfected for the use of kids and staff.
Corporate Kids hosted 10 children for the kids camp with ages from infant to school age managed by Stacey Woodzell, one of our long time National Program Managers. She was accompanied by 4 local Kearney staff, all who fully enjoyed the experience of working with the kids. Stacey reported her favorite part of the kids camp was, “seeing the children happy to be playing and interacting with the other children.”
The theme of the event was Beach and Pirates. This centered on activities and craft projects that surrounded a day at sea such as mask making with real “jewels” as well a scavenger hunt and a beach balloon game.
The scavenger hunt, always a kid favorite focuses on team building, socialization as well as builds communication skills. They are required to search for items in the space and check them off a list. A very pirate-y activity indeed resembling treasure hunting! The beach balloon toss was another fun game and allowed the kids to use some energy while playing with balloons in an open room.
One of the staff mentioned something funny to Stacey, “ Watching the two babies play and communicate was very funny and cute. Neither talked but understood what each other wanted by making noises.” And there you have it, another exciting kids camp complete!
The Young Farmers and Ranchers 2021 Conference was held at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Kearney, Nebraska for January 29th and 30th with 10 child attendees. You can learn more about the Nevada Farm Bureau by visiting their website (www.nefb.org)
