Did you know that spending quality time as a family has more benefits than simply avoiding boredom and limiting screen time? Family time promotes better communication, improved academic and social behavior, less overall behavioral problems, and lower stress levels in children. It’s important to plan quality time with your family in order to strengthen relationships with your children. For our CHLC families in Boerne, take a look at some of these local activities that are perfect for family time.

Note: The community events listed may be cancelled at any moment due to COVID-19.
