Seven Stars, an assessment center and residential treatment program for teens with neurodevelopmental disorders, engages students in fun, adventure-filled outdoor adventure programming each weekend.
In April, students had the opportunity to go on a three day camping trip and take in the natural beauty of Utah. Students explored Goblin Valley State Park where they encountered goblin-like sandstone formations. They also went on an 8-mile long canyoneering adventure through Little Wild Horse Canyon and Bell Canyon. These classic slot canyons have long stretches of “narrows” where the walls are sometimes so close, you have to turn sideways to get through. On their last day, they hiked to Little Horse Cave, a huge cave containing Anasazi petroglyphs.
“Outdoor adventure activities get them out of their element and create opportunities for learning and new perspectives. All of the students expressed how much they gained an appreciation for nature.” says Sheldon Barlow, Outdoor Adventure Leader at Seven Stars. “Some even said that they didn't want to leave! It was a wonderful trip that helped students step outside of their comfort zone.”
