The Exploration Project (18 - 20 Years Old)
We are all unique individuals. Each one of us has a story to tell. Each story is important. The Exploration (EXP) Project is a chance to come together in a group setting to explore self and gain tangible life skills. The goal of the EXP Project is to provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment where we can share our experiences and learn useful lifelong capabilities. Activities will focus on self reflection, self empowerment, and acquiring knowledge of activities that will help you live a healthy and happy life.
The program is open to youth who are 18-20 years of age and have had cancer, are siblings of those who have or have had cancer or who are bereaved siblings.
The EXP Project will run on the following dates in the summer of 2018:
EXP 1 - Muscles in Motion / July 22 - 25
Finding the time to find and participate in physical activity that we enjoy can sometimes be difficult or overwhelming. An important step to be successful in this area is acquiring the proper skill set. In this program, learn the basics of exercise prescription and planning, try a variety of different recreational activities, and understand how to time manage properly to fit physical activity into your day. Push yourself both to your physical and mental limits alongside your peers while you learn about the fundamentals of proper exercise.
EXP 2 - Into the Wild / July 27 - July 30
