Youth Extreme Recreation Adventure: Rec in the Redwoods
Friday, March 1st to Sunday, March 3rd
During the 2018 and 2019 school years, the LightHouse’s Youth Program will be hosting monthly extreme recreation activities and adventures for youth that are blind or have low vision. Those that sign up for these monthly outings will have opportunities to make new friends, meet mentors and develop life skills that will help them be successful in other aspects of life - all while enjoying the wonderful recreation options that the Bay Area and surrounding areas have to offer.
In March, the LightHouse Youth Program will be joining friends from the Adult Health and Wellness Program as well as Students from the YES program for a weekend of learning and growth at Enchanted Hills Camp. During this busy weekend, students will take part in a variety of fun and thought-provoking activities that will help them reflect on how they advocate for themselves during recreational activities and apply those advocacy skills in other aspects of life.
The weekend’s activities will start Friday evening with a campfire and some team building activities. Saturday, students will partake in a series of ropes course challenges, team building activities and climbing to the tops of some of the majestic trees at EHC with trained professionals. Our weekend will wrap up Sunday with a morning hike before we head back to the Bay Area.
