Family Fun Day

Family fun day has a carnival atmosphere, with fun for everyone! Staffed by Royston Baptist Church members, Family Fun Day is a free event which includes games and activities, snacks and lunch, musical guests, prize giveaways, a puppet show, and a few live animals!

To promote awareness of disability issues and the need for inclusion in the community, we invite everyone to join us, and attendance grows every year.

Community agencies and organizations are invited to share information with families, and many families have learned about resources available to help their children with special needs throuth this project.

Held annually on a Saturday in late September, Family Fun Day continues to be one of CSP's most popular events.Family Fun Day

Christmas Party

During the month of December we invite Santa and CSP kids and their families to a weeknight party to open the Christmas season!

A snack supper is held, followed by caroling at the piano and the Christmas Story by the fire with the Pastor of Royston Baptist Church.

Sleigh bells jingle... and then Santa appears to talk to each child in attendance and give him or her a special gift. Photos are taken and sent to families via email.

Christmas Party

Summer Social

At the lake home of our founder, Jean Davison, our summer social is great fun in the sun! (Or inside where it's cool if necessary!)

Families bring dishes to share and we catch up on each others' lives in the peaceful waterfront setting.

Valentine's Dinner

A real sit-down dinner. With real silverware. And candles. And quiet conversation with no distractions. Obviously Adults Only! (Childcare is provided.)

Share Groups

Facilitated by CSP officers, Share Groups meet the needs of many families who want to talk about the successes and the struggles of having a child with a disaiblity. Topics vary, and meeting times are arranged to meet the needs of the most members.

Vacation Bible School

Specially trained volunteers will accompany your child to the regular VBS classes. Specific learning or behavioral needs are addressed through individual planning.

VBS

Telephone and Email Friends

Since we are limited in how often we get together in person, CSP members support each other through telephone and email. A listening ear is never more than a ring - or a click! - away!

Guest Presenters, Workshops, and Forums

  • Financial Planning
