Highlights

  • Orientation: JC’s are invited to attend the pre-season ‘JC Orientation and Crew Season Kick off Celebration’ (hot chocolate and S'mores) on Sunday, January 12, 2020 from 4:30 - 6:30. Location in Cleveland Park neighborhood and details will be relayed as we get closer to start.

  • Weekly commitment: We realize that our JC's can often have busy after-school schedules With that in mind, we allow JC’s to attend as many or as few sessions per week that work for their schedule. You have flexibility and can pick the day(s) that work for you each week. JC's are welcome to arrive to the site at 4:00 for the Crew Brief.

  • Enrichment: Every few sessions we introduce age appropriate enrichment to our JC's: basic wilderness first aid; intro to survival skills; unique explorers and their adventure stories; leadership skills, etc. JC’s (and JC’s parents) will also enjoy a weekly JC Enrichment letter. At end of season our JC’s embark on a session long, supervised ‘solo’ in the woods; a unique hour to unplug, reflect and connect. What a treat!

  • JC Passage: JC’s will have an Elements Season End Passage ceremony. Those who complete the eight week program will receive recognition, a simple award and a certificate stating completion of the program. They will also receive individual evaluations
