Residents from The Watermark at East Hill joined by Boy Scouts from Troop 158 and 58 set out on a three-day trip to Washington. As part of a pilot program designed by Jim Bain, Director of Dining Services and Denise Julian, Director of Health Services at The Watermark, the program seeks to create intergenerational opportunities.
“The Scouts and residents had such a great time planning this trip. Watching their interactions and blossoming friendships during their time in our nation’s capital was something I’ll never forget,” said Bain. “Watching these two groups experience Washington, many for the first time, was so rewarding and made all the hard work and long hours it took to plan the trip totally worth it!”
Part of the funding for the Scouts’ trip was funded by Watermark for Kids, a national nonprofit organization that provides awards for children to learn, grow, thrive and pursue their interests and passions.
