Adventure Challenge Program
School season is here and subsequently this means our school Adventure Challenge Programs are back on! We run these programs throughout the year, however, we are very excited to be back into the school season. Each of the programs are designed to provide at-risk youth ages 10-17 with positive development through life skills curriculum, and adventure challenge programming. Above all, the best part is the programs are FREE! All youth will be stretched out of their comfort zones, and more. In summary, the outdoors coupled with youth development means tons of fun!
Note: Adventure Challenge Programs are open to any youth ages 10-17. Youth Odyssey does not discriminate based on disabilities or race.¬†¬
The Adventure Challenge Programs are a lot fun but also challenging. Hence the name! As an example, throughout the program each youth will learn more about what it means to be a leader, work as team,¬† the importance of goal-setting, and to trust others. In addition, they will have the opportunity to go on two trips both in the fall and spring semesters. Furthermore, the list below explains the progression of the program, and trips in further detail.
A fun day trip to our ropes course where youth participate in low and high elements. Low elements consist of activities on the ground that foster teamwork, overcoming challenges, and support. The high elements such as rock-climbing and walking across a cable suspended 35 feet in the air, are facilitated by trained and certified belayers.
