A social recreational program designed to encourage overall growth and development among Club members. With activities dedicated to the mind, the body, and the soul, Triple Play encourages members to develop healthy habits and a strong moral character.
Daily activities include gameroom tournaments, outdoor fun and games, arts and crafts, and science experiments. “High-yield activities” are also an integral part of this program – these activities are “fun – with a purpose.” These activities include educational games such as Bananagrams and Scrabble, “puzzle club,” and riddles, just to name a few. Monthly challenges focus attention on specifically targeted areas, such as participation in physical fitness, choosing healthy snacks, and displaying positive character qualities. Some challenges have included encouraging members to eat an apple a day, challenging them to participate in FitClub, and using good manners. This program uses incentives and recognition to encourage frequent participation. CurrentTriple Play sponsors include the Nashoba Valley Healthcare Fund, Wal-Mart, Planet Fitness of Lunenburg, and the CHNA-9. Indoor space has been generously donated by the United Parish of Lunenburg and T.C. Passios Elementary school.
