Family Weekend Adventure – Not in 2022
This powerful program provides families an opportunity to share a SOAR virtual adventure together!
While many families use the SOAR Family Weekend to introduce their child to a SOAR experience, this program also allows families to begin discussions that will continue beyond the weekend course. It will give parents the tools necessary to help their child manage their ADHD or LD, while improving confidence in themselves and their abilities. Siblings are also an important part of this experience, as they too will learn how to manage their responses to and interactions with those affected with ADHD or LD.
The weekend will begin with a virtual meet and greet on Friday evening. On Saturday, parents will be in their own breakout rooms for workshops while the kids are in activity-based breakout rooms.
Parents will participate in group sessions led by Jonathan Jones, SOAR Founder, and John Willson, SOAR Executive Director. The goal of these sessions will be to create a forum for sharing, growing, and learning about LD and ADHD management. Before the start of the program, a survey will be mailed to each family soliciting input regarding topics of interest. Topics may include: behavior management strategies, advocacy skills, communication issues, sibling interactions, conflict resolution, organizational & social skills, and preferred learning styles.
All families will receive an activity box in the mail prior to the start of the weekend. While parents are engaged in workshops, children & siblings will participate in virtual and hands-on activities designed to both be fun and promote social skills! To cap off the weekend, families will participate in a virtual team-building event designed to promote communication and trust.
The Camp Experience
"Soar is such a safe place to leave our child. The open and frequent communication is so helpful and comforting. The low ratio of staff to children is beneficial for children who struggle."
