Corporate Kids Events, a Nationwide and International company that does conference childcare, teamed up with Kiewit, one of the largest engineering and construction organizations in North America in December in Ranchos Palos Verdes, California for their Public Works Conferences for employees. Corporate Kids Events has done numerous events for Kiewit over the years. This past year we are hosted Kiewit events in Fort Worth, Denver, Aurora, Irving, Dallas and more.
Kiewit is a 130-year old company originally started by 2 brothers. Kiewit’s work includes, ‘building roads that connect the world, digging canals to thirsty lands, and bored tunnels through mountains (Kiewit.org, 2019). The Public Works Conferences included several events in the month of December in various cities in North America. Some of these conferences were multiple days, such as in Ranchos Palos Verdes.
Corporate Kids Events gave the opportunity for families to bring their children with them to this 2-day conference childcare event and enjoy their own side special kids camp with the a Holiday theme while the parents learned more about Kiewit programs and processes. The kids also had a special visit from a wildlife rescue organization, which they really loved. Several activities were also prepared including karoke, holiday crafts and cookie decorating and a scavenger hunt.
Corporate Kids hosted 21 children for this 2-day kids camp, managed by our own Lucy Leon, one of our Senior Program Managers. “My favorite part of the event was watching the karoke, one of the kids did a full on song and dance production- and we were all very impressed with how they really got into the activity,” reports Lucy.
The surprise visit from a local Wildlife Rescue Organization brought 2 birds of prey for the children to see up close, learn about and event touch! “The bird show was awesome!” said Lucy. The kids and staff were able to touch an owl and a hawk that had been injured and rehabilitated at the center. The birds could not be released back into the wild due to their injuries, so they now accompany the organization on educational outings and outreach. It was a great opportunity for these kids to learn about these animals up close and personal to build respect for animals and for the habitat in which they live.
The Scavenger hunt, always a favorite, focused on team building and teaches the kids about socialization and communication skills. They are required to find items around the hotel on the list as a team and
Another activity was teaching the kids how to deal with Bullies. The focus was on overcoming meanness with kindness as well as helping them be aware of their words and how it can make others feel. This activity included role-playing and demonstrations by our staff. It was informative and fun!
Scout, one of the campers mentioned “My favorite part of the conference was that I got to hang out with my friends while learning at the same time, so it made it like a fun learning environment.”
This NHF Inhibitor event in Indianapolis, Indiana was located at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis with 45 child attendees. You can learn more about the National Hemophilia Foundation by visiting their website (www.hemophilia.org).
