TyTans Archery Club

Our archery program has been expanding, and now we have a youth archery club! A great way for your kids to be active in a beneficial environment. Read below for Mr. John’s letter about the club: Dear Kids-Youth-Parents-Grandparents, This letter is to let you know about TyTans Archery Club (Teller Youth Team Archery).  It is just for kids/youth, male/female, ages 8 to 17.  We meet at Cripple Creek Park & Rec (CCP&R) most Saturdays from 10:00 to 12:00, and from 12:00 to 2:00.

Another advantage of archery is that it is truly a lifelong sport for all ages, and ANYBODY can learn how to shoot, and most that do love...

Pamper Mom This Mother’s Day

This month’s craft is our last for the summer! Summer is busy for everyone, so we’re taking a break to enjoy the sunshine and will be back with more projects when the school year starts! But before we go, we’ll be making a great little spa set that’s perfect as a Mother’s Day gift – of course, no one’s saying you can’t keep it for yourself! The spa set is a three-part project that includes Shower Jellies, Sugar Scrub, and Lip Scrub. Everything begins unscented, and you can choose from the variety of options what scents and colors would be best for your mom – or you!   Shower jellies can be used basically the same as soap, just as a fun version. Small pieces can be added to a loofa to create a cleaning lather, or each small...
