Salt Lake City, UT: Eva Carlston, a residential treatment program for teen girls, is providing an unforgettable summer for their students. Summer is often a time when students have completed their necessary academic credits or, if they are ready to graduate the program, they need something that will provide structure until school starts in the fall. To help with this, Eva Carlston planned events that will be both educational and fun for students who need it. The summer is organized into trips and local activities.
- The summer starts off with a nine day trip to Washington, D.C. where they explore museums, kayak on the Potomac and visit Jefferson’s Monticello.
- In June, they will go to Los Angeles for an art focus trip where they will explore many of the art museums in the LA area, including the Getty and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. They will also take a street art tour and an architecture tour.
- In July, students will see seven plays at the Utah Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City, UT and will head to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, UT for 5 days of volunteering.
- The summer will conclude with a white-water rafting trip from Moab, UT to Lake Powell, over 100 miles, and exploring some of the national parks in Southern Utah.
When not on the trips, groups of students will have experiences around Salt Lake City. Each week has a different theme, including "Women in Leadership", "Art and Adulting", "The Great Outdoors", "Community Engagement" and "Career Development". Each week will have activities related to the theme, incorporating a mix of meeting with professionals and experts in the community and practical activities to build skills in a given area.
Eva Carlston hopes that the summer activities will provide additional opportunities for the students to practice and hone the skills they have been learning and will provide experiences to help students develop new interests to contribute to becoming productive and involved adults.
