All Kinds of News for February 05, 2020
Legacy Outdoor Adventures and Juniper Canyon Recovery Center for Women are thrilled to announce that they will be collaborating with other therapeutic programs and companies in their effort to spread awareness about wilderness therapy and the efficacy of outdoor and adventure-based therapy.
The February 2nd Cityscape Adventure kicked off the series, with a group of professionals ice skating at Wollen Rink in New York City. The group discussed the change in mood when getting outside, seeing the sun occasionally pop through the clouds, and sharing in a fun experience. Attendees talked about getting out of negative head spaces while laughing to silly pop songs and skating around in NYC's central park. Attendees also discussed challenges and fears prior to skating and body’s ability to remember how to skate (even if it’s been years), as well as old skating memories. More experienced skaters naturally took to teaching and supporting those skaters with less ice time.
The ten programs who have signed up to be National Sponsors of the entire series are aligned in their belief in the power of experiential therapies such as nature-based mental health and wellness initiatives. While not all of the programs are “wilderness” programs, all of the National Sponsor programs support the mission of Cityscape Adventure Series.
National Sponsors will be attending many of the adventures throughout the year and are also helping to spread the word about each event. In addition, each event will provide an opportunity for Legacy, Juniper Canyon, and the National Sponsors to network with programs and professionals locally to further the spirit of collaboration.
The ten National Sponsors are Choice House (CO), EDGE Wellness (IL), In Balance Continuum of Care (AZ), The Grounds (CA), Skyline Recovery (OR), Northstar Transitions (CO), Summit Achievement (ME), Hired Power (CA), Videra Healthcare (UT), and PACE Recovery (CA).
