Art comes in many forms and can be interpreted in many ways. At our creation station campers will get to explore their creative side and make projects such as friendship bracelets, skits, tie dye, painting, poetry, music, and more.
We all love a bit of downtime to chill out and relax. At this station campers will have opportunities to try new yoga poses, read while hammocking, learn methods to cope with stress, and other calming activities.
All of our stations provide youth with learning opportunities, but at this station kids will be engaged through STEM projects and practice critical thinking and problem solving. Many activities at this station will be nature based and will allow youth to learn new skills such as plant identification, survival skills, and environmental ethics.
This station makes campers aware of recreational activities in their local area or even their own backyard. Participants will have the chance to experience fishing, disc golf, stand up paddle boarding, hiking, kayaking, pickleball as well as lawn games like cornhole, badminton, and bocce ball.
SOAR engages youth in activities that are meaningful while surrounding them with responsible
teen and adult role models. Engagement and mentorship are two important components of early
substance use prevention.
