You asked...we're delivering!
Our new virtual summer retreats will be interactive and engaging while nicely balancing physical activity, games, labs, and even cooking lessons, with skill lessons, peer discussions, and practicing new life tools. It will even include SCREEN-FREE activities!
We will keep your teen from boring of dull on-screen time (and protect their eyes) by keeping the sections short and alternating to keep their interest piqued with just the right amount of well-timed breaks. They'll be honing their self-improvement skills, teamwork skills, and even develop some leadership skills through the course of the week.
They will also get opportunities to choose between different lessons and activities that interest them most and go into the breakout room session of their choice with that instructor in our "choose your own adventure" curriculum format.
The lesson tools and activities in every retreat are designed to increase self-esteem, confidence, self-talk, body image, communication and conflict, healthy relationships, handling failure and rejection, managing emotions, relieving stress, having better nutrition, mindfulness, mental-physical-emotional-social health balance, and of course having LOTS OF FUN in the process.
All retreats run from 1-5pm each day with 30 minutes of scattered breaks throughout the day, and 30 minutes of SCREEN-FREE activities.
Teens will also receive an exciting personalized care package in the mail that will include their 2020 retreat t-shirt and ingredients for cooking lessons if applicable, as well as items needed for labs and other fun surprises related to the retreat. We know how important it is for teens to have something to look forward to this summer so we wanted to create anticipation, connection, and show we care.
Your teen will look forward to the fun and variety of each day, while making new friends, bonding with their college mentors and peers, and gaining more confidence in the process. What can we say? It's Empowerteen!
