TRINITY PINES DAY CAMP 2014
As you can see in the video above, we had a fantastic time at our July 2nd summer day camp. We took our 12 and older youth to Cascade, Idaho. At the beautiful Trinity Pines Campground, each child felt challenged in a non-threatening way. Each was given the choice as to which challenge they wanted to tackle and each child rose to the occasion. For some it was a terror of heights, for others a fear of talking to people, for yet others, being willing to trust someone...anyone...was a huge hurtle.
Through activities designed to build trust, we saw relationships between mentors and mentees strengthened. We saw mentees accepted and cared for by each other. Each fear was real and each person was able to face and in some way overcome those fears on this incredible day. The secret? They did not face those fears alone. Thank you to the incredible mentors who took time off of work and their normal routine to spend the day with a group of incredible kids. You impacted lives in ways you may never know. Thank you!
We send special appreciation to our two donors who made this trip of a lifetime possible for these youth. As you can see in the video, it was truly life changing.
