The Foam Party was a huge hit with the kids, they even had life sized popular game like Connect Four! This was an opportunity to think outside the box! The director was with MWR for 20 years and wanted to do something different. They did, and it was a huge success!!

“This course was fantastic! I have done a lot of professional development training while in this position and to be honest, a lot of times it doesn’t apply to me. However, this course, while not my actual job, does have elements that I can utilize in my current position. The materials taught here cross all divisions and departments in the MWR realm and everyone can take a lot away from this course.”
“Outstanding class that everyone could learn from if they come with an open mind. The amazing ideas presented by the students and the instructors were truly impressive and have caused a serious reexamination of current practices. The group rocked and brought it to a whole new level.”
“I just wanted to thank you for what I learned and have taken back to Fort Gordon to make [events] even better. See you can teach an old dog new tricks after all!!”
