Fathers play a critical role in the wellness of the family and in the healthy development of a child—including instilling proper social, emotional, and communication skills, reducing risk-taking behaviors in adolescence (including alcohol and drug use and teen pregnancy), and academic achievement.

Dad Time is designed to provide free monthly opportunities for dads to connect with their kids in fun and unique ways that promote positive father-child interactions, healthy communication, and teamwork and problem-solving skills.



WHEN:  Saturday, June 11th from 1pm – 3pm

WHERE:  Hessel Park Pavilion—1400 Grandview Dr, Champaign, IL 61820

WHAT?  Build some wooden stilts with your child(ren).

All materials will be provided. If you can bring a handsaw and power drill,
that will help but is not necessary.

We will gather at the main pavilion at Hessel Park.  Instructions will be given to the group and each family will complete the project at their own pace. Only 1 pair of stilts per family (but multiple children welcome).
