CHILDREN'S WEEK 2017, September 29th - October 5th
Each year several of the APC partners join together to coordinate and plan a week of activities for children, youth and their families known as Children’s Week. This event has been celebrated for 28 years in Augusta, Georgia and kicks off during the first full week of October. Planned activities include a Kick-Off Celebration, Teen Maze, Family Festival, Children’s Story Time, Community Breakfast, and Students Who Care Scholarship Luncheon.
Children’s Week yields approximately 10,000 patrons and each year is expected to be bigger and better. This annual event features a variety of activities for children of all ages and their families. Each activity is unique in that it offers fun and enriching activities for children while providing opportunities for parents and agency/nonprofit personnel to learn about the various resources in our community (specifically for children and families). Children’s Week is also a time for our young people to showcase their talents, skills, and abilities to the general public. Sponsorships and donations allow all Children’s Week activities to be free of charge, thus enabling persons of all economic levels to participate.
