Levine, human services liaison. “It also provides an opportunity to share experiences and make new friends.”

The Raritan Valley Community College Improv Club will involve all participants in a group activity. Everyone will participate in yoga, a magical performance by Conrad the Magician, team building skills, Minute-To-Win-It games, and a healthy activity. In addition, kids will enjoy music by DJ CJ, mocktails, basketball, Marshmallow Tower, friendship-bracelet making and board games.
