On November 19, Kristen Haskins Simms and her son Quincy hosted a super fun craft party at Kristen's fashion studio in Mt. Airy in Philadelphia. Connor and Neily and their son Declan had a great time meeting Quincy's friends from the Cooperative Nursery School (CNS).

It was impossible not to draw parallels between the school and Camp Common Ground. At CNS, parents participate as assistant teachers in the school 1-3 times per month, which creates a close-knit intergenerational community. Parents and kids get to know each other and support each other through joyful and challenging times, in a similar way to the community that emerges at family camp each summer and continues throughout the year.

Many thanks to Kristen for being an incredible hostess! Find out more about Kristen's fun fashion designs on her facebook page.
