Recreation

Through daily involvement in numerous scheduled activities, youth learn to exercise self-reliance, build self-esteem, and place trust in others.

Adventure Based Counseling is designed to encourage positive risk taking in a supportive, compassionate, and noncompetitive environment. We offer youth a unique opportunity to receive treatment through an evidenced-based program called Behavior Management Through Adventure. This program encourages youth to discuss their shared experience, drawing upon skills they used and lessons they learned in helping their team succeed, in a group setting.

We also offer corporate team building at our ABC facility.

Youth can participate in varsity level basketball, as well as track and field. Additional athletic programs include flag football, kickball, ping pong, and softball.
