2017: A Year of Success!

by Andrea Wackerle

A lot of amazing things happened at SOAR in 2017, and we are excited to share them with you!

1. We served 674 campers across all of our locations this summer. This is the most campers we have ever served! We are excited to hopefully exceed this number in 2018!


2. In 2017, over 50 campers received scholarships to attend, including two full scholarships! We know that there are so many more campers out there who need financial assistance, so we have exciting plans to help grow this number in the coming years.

3. In the Spring of 2017, six students graduated from the Academy at SOAR, making 2017 our largest graduating class! All of these students are currently pursuing higher education, and we couldn’t be more proud!


4. We launched a NEW camp video. Check it out!

5. The Academy at SOAR expanded with the purchase of an additional property on Balsam Base, Alumni Hall. This property provides additional living and multipurpose space for students and helps adjoin our current properties.

All of these successes would not be possible without you all! We are so appreciative of your support and commitment to SOAR. We wish you all a very happy holiday season and a prosperous new year!
