Specific Location of Regular Meetings:

There are three active chapters in the Chesapeake Regional Council and one chapter in Columbia. Each chapter runs their own specific activities, along with a dance every Sunday night for the parents to socialize. The number of people attending the dances ranges from 100 to 150 people.

Typical Activities Include:

We offer picnics, parties, dining out, trips to the circus, amusement parks, and holiday themed activities. We feel it is important to have the children meet other children from single parent homes. Usually the activity is free of cost for the children, and the parent pays as they go. The age of a child is considered to be 18 or under. Other activities inlcude going camping, snow tubing, and visiting the zoo and the train museum

Tips and Tricks

  • Attend all activities that are available to you or your children.
  • Meet and talk with others in your same situation and compare notes on raising children in a single parent home.
  • Note: Dress is casual according to the activity involved.
