Blue Ridge’s Footsteps Program Continues to Evolve by Enriching Family Involvement

3-7-16 G4 (1)

Blue Ridge first opened our Footsteps group for pre-teens in 2006, as one of the first wilderness therapy programs to work with this younger adolescent age group. It has always been developmentally focused to fit the needs of 10-14 year-olds, with an emphasis on nurturing these kids through every interaction. Our field staff balance supporting students through tasks while not rescuing them from what needs to be done. In this way, our students develop new skills while having the “safety net” of caring adults. We are a co-ed group led by co-ed field staff. This mirrors the traditional school setting where students develop their communication skills and build healthy relationships with peers and staff of different genders. These young students spend most days backpacking, but every ten days, they get to regroup and spend time at our hybrid base camp, called The Fort.

Not long ago “at-risk youth” could be defined as a young person exposed to a daily onslaught of gangs, drugs, and violence within a single-parent, low income demographic.  According to the organization: At-Risk Youth Programs, behaviors that result in “dangerous lifestyles” are often the result of stress that kids experience.  In recent years we have seen a shift in demographics of at-risk youth.  With the stress of school, extra-curricular activities, learning differences, and ever-increasing mandates to test and measure progress, our kids are being medicated and go to therapy to “normalize” outcomes.  As a result, our education system in America has created an entire population of at-risk youth from every demographic!

MLK

The community’s foundation is self-government. During our community meetings, we discuss a variety of topics including the school fiscal report, clubs, field trips, interests and issues. We follow Robert’s Rules of Order during our meetings. As a community the members create and vote upon the constitution and amendments of our school. It is this set of rules that govern our community. These rules define the areas in which our personal freedoms should not impose on the freedoms of the community. Students and mentors learn boundaries, respect, character, debate and consequences within this system.

5 Things You Should Know About Your Kid’s Brain Throughout Childhood

Human-Brain-Development-1

As a parent, you have the privilege to watch your child grow and mature throughout life. It starts with hearing their first heartbeat to holding their tiny hand, supporting them through their first crush, cheering them on through their graduation from college and beyond. You dream of their future and do your best to help them be successful. No parent wants their child to suffer or be unprepared for their life, right? One of the major components of success as an adult is that the foundation was laid in your childhood to know how to think, plan and cope with life. I wish I had taken the time when mine were little to understand the importance of their brain formation and development.

Second Nature 209 (1)-min

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. —Robert Louis Stevenson

Kids go to school and do whatever they want?

democratic free school

"You can do anything you want at this school!" It can be appealing to kids when they're able to tell their friends that they go to a school where that can do whatever they want. A better way to phrase it would be to say that they go to a school where anything they want to do is possible. For those of you who haven't heard about democratic free schools, here are a couple key words we could be batched in...
