Summer Program 2019
The La Plata Youth Services 2019 Summer Program is a 11-week program for middle school youth, beginning the week of June 9th and ending August 15th, culminating in a 5-K and 1-K Fun Run and BBQ on August 17th. Youth meet each week on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. TRANSPORTATION is provided if needed.
Combining experiential learning with fun activities, workshop leaders integrate a therapeutic learning model into their activities, focusing on the development of self-confidence and self-esteem. Experiential learning is combined with challenging outdoor and artistic learning activities that reflect on doing as a means to build a healthy life. LPYS’ philosophy encourages youth to make connections between experience and how to positively self-reflect on these lessons and build healthy outlooks.
Summer Program 2019 Theme Is INTERCONNECTEDNESS: Water, past present future; Exploration; Community; and Exploring outer reaches of nature.
Our workshop this year are listed below:
- Building Community
- Art Exploration
- Equestrian & Archaeological Exploration
- Connecting with Nature through Place, Organic Gardening and Farm-to-Table Cooking
We are also offering two Saturday mornings workshop in clay sculpting with Seed Studio!
A “fun day” at the end of each month celebrates the joy of youth meeting these challenges!
