Pen Pal Explorers
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
Pen Pal Explorer Kits are a fun way to stay connected to others from home. Put down the electronics, make a new friend, and be creative this summer!
Pen Pal Explorer Kits are $15 and each child will be given a Pen Pal Kit to include:
- Pens & pencils
- Notepad and paper
- Pen Pal Explorer folder
Children will be assigned a pen pal in town to connect with, get to know, and share interests back and forth through written letters or pictures. Share your favorite summer activity, something fun you are looking forward too or have done so far, or ask questions to learn more about your new pen pal!
To preserve privacy: Only first names and last initial will be shared with your pen pal. No addresses will be shared, either. Letters will be deposited in the designated mailbox at the Bristol Youth and Community Services building (51 High Street). BPRYCS staff will address and send letters to pen pals.
Update: Due to orders not arriving on schedule, Pen Pal kits will be picked up between 6/15/22-6/22/22. Specific date and time TBD and will be sent out to those participating.
