Over the next few weeks, a group of your program coordinators and counselors will be posting “classes” here on Neringa’s social media accounts on Mondays and Thursdays of every week. They’ll be brief videos with songs, dances, prayers, recipes, reflections, and more — just like what you’d learn at Neringa!
Be sure to check back on Thursday when the bell will ring for our first class! Until then: Išsiskirstom! Valio!
