Trails Momentum Students Create New Legacy Projects
At Trails Momentum, a young adult wilderness therapy program, students have recently completed new legacy projects for future students to enjoy. Legacy Projects are a milestone before graduation and serve as a way to give back to the community.
Recently, students have broadened the scope of their legacy projects. One recent graduate connected with his peers over the game of chess. When he learned that the chessboard had been damaged, he decided to make a new one using his math skills, some woodworking materials, and some wood stain. Another student spent time refurbishing a campus field site that groups use during Peak and Expo weekends. His efforts to repair benches, clean out the fire ring, and clear out some extra brush has allowed current and future Momentum students to have a more comfortable experience at the site.
After noticing how much he and his fellow group members enjoyed singing together, another recent graduate put together a book of song lyrics to encourage groups to learn even more songs and to sing them together during group activities. The songbook includes multiple genres and is available for use in the campus Lodge.
These projects provide students with the opportunity to create lasting experiences for themselves and others. Students discover and cultivate their passions with the support of staff. With confidence and experience gained, students prepare to launch into the next chapter of their lives.
