Holiday Cards for Troops Overseas & Boot Camp Event

October 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Take time with your kids to make holiday cards for troops and give them a boot-camp experience that teaches perseverance!

At this event we’ll be joining thousands of others across the country that are making cards for Operation Christmas Cards for the Troops. Our goal is to make 192 cards! Everyone is invited, so grab your friends and their kids, grandparents, aunts and uncles. We’ll also have a mini boot camp setup with multiple stations that will challenge your kids in a fun way.

Just in time for the holidays, this event will help children appreciate the men and women of our armed forces and build character skills through giving back!

What you need to bring

Each child should come dressed in clothes that are able to get dirty as one of the boot camp stations will require crawling on the floor. We’ll provide all of the materials for the cards 😊 If you’d like to bring candy or toiletries these can be donated along with the cards.

About the club

Inside Out Club DuPage (formerly I Support Community) started in September 2012 after seeing the overwhelming need for children to possess a strong foundation in character and community. Our mission is to develop kids with character inside and out.

Inside Out Club opportunities

inside out club graphicThe Inside Out Club (IOC) is designed to engage kids and families in as many of these four opportunities as possible as they practice character skills and volunteer. Working with teachers, volunteers, parents, school administrators and outside organizations, the Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 1,400 students and their families. IOC focuses on DuPage County and its needs.

What does Inside Out mean? We work to help students develop the character skills necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community. Lessons are based on the foundations of social and emotional learning, which helps people recognize and manage emotions, develop empathy for others, maintain cooperative relationships and make responsible decisions.
