FIND YOUR BEST SELF TEEN GROUP 2021

DESCRIPTION:

A 6-8 hour outdoor experience designed to encourage teens to expand their horizons as to what they think they are capable of. They will be challenged physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally, through several different activities that will push some of their limits. They will learn to work together, to care for each other and look outside themselves.

 

They can expect to get wet, muddy, tired, and they might even have some fun! At FYBS we have experienced coaches that will expect the best from each participant in an encouraging, non-shaming atmosphere. We will challenge each participant to dig deep within, to examine their lives and behaviors, and set a trajectory to reach their goals. We do not expect overnight change, however we know powerful emotional experiences are the beginnings of transformation. It is here that we all can take ahold of our BEST SELVES.

schedule:

We will meet at 9am. The day will take between 6 and 8 hours. You can schedule a ride after you finish your day, but we will not be certain of the exact end time at the outset.

physical requirements:

There are no physical requirements. However participants should be willing to do moderate to difficult physical activity throughout the event. Participants will have rest breaks. Participants will not be allowed to participate with current injuries or conditions that may put them at risk.

MENTAL/spritual/emotional PREPARATION:
  • Participants should prepare by being ready to give 100% to themselves and their teammates.

  • Arrive with a positive attitude, knowing you are about to accomplish something you have never done before.

  • Many participants say this was difficult and perhaps one of the best things they had ever done. Many say it was life changing. Have a WHY. Why are you coming? Coming because your parents made you is not an acceptable answer.

  • Make this your event. What do you want to challenge, change, or learn about deep within yourself?
