At Dragonfly Transitions, all students engage in adventure based trips to explore new edges, deepen peer relationships and develop self-confidence to try new experiences. Each year, Dragonfly Transitions combines adventure, exploration, community service and relaxation in facilitating several student trips planned around the school calendar. These excursions include annual therapist caseload trips to national parks, a service trip to Portland, ski and snowboarding expeditions to Mt. Shasta and Bend, camping based spring break trips throughout Oregon and California, summer rafting, hiking, and mountain biking trips, and an optional 3-week international service trip to Cambodia that many students have described as a life-changing experience.
For Spring Break this year, Dragonfly Transitions students will embark on one of four camping based adventures with experienced staff to Mount St. Helens (WA), the Oregon Coast, the San Francisco Bay Area, and the Redwoods. Just some of the adventures include white water rafting, camping among the giant redwoods in Jedediah Smith State Park, and visiting the Northcoast Mammal Rescue Center to see rescued sea lions and seals and learn about the different marine mammals. These 5-day trips offer an opportunity for students to connect with peers and experientially explore in a new environment.
During these trips, students will experience new and exciting ways to safely engage in Spring Break and then return refreshed and ready to continue with their school year. As a part of the Dragonfly curriculum, all students participate in the adventures program to explore new edges and discover new interests that they may never have tried otherwise. These trips bring the community closer together and provide active learning experiences for all students.
