Group Activities


Socializing? Not a problem!

Being a part of NFLT means being part of a true community of support. Both the youth and the parents form friendships with a variety of other families (including kids of all ages, 0-18!) through the many opportunities we have to play, learn, support, and grow together.

NFLT has an online communication resource (forum) through which our families:

  • Ask questions for guidance and support;
  • Share ideas, resources, and experiences;
  • Post about community and NFLT events;
  • Develop relationships that extend beyond NFLT activities into groups like robotics teams, youth clubs, getting together for library events, etc.

2016 Fall Campout NFLT is defined by our members. Our group has an ethos of volunteering. As such there are a fantastic number of activities and events in which our families can participate, including three sessions of enrichment classes that are cooperatively taught as well as many weekly and monthly activities.

Below is a list of options that our youth and their families enjoy - note that some are not NFLT-sponsored events but many of our families are part of them.
