Adventure Camp Staff (ADHD/LD wilderness program)

We are strength-focused! Our students deal with the reality of their LD and ADHD challenges every day at home and school, so when they come to SOAR, we focus on their strengths and abilities to help them develop those skills. You would also be helping the campers work on personal growth goals that address the common ADHD/LD challenges of disorganization, poor social skills, or impulsive behavior. At the end of each course, staff will write an evaluation on each student that highlights their areas of strength and details their progress toward these goals. OUR TEAM SOAR is a team of hard workers, problem solvers, confidants, superheroes, coaches, dreamers, believers, and memory makers. We share core values that allow us to strive toward our mission.  Together we are a community striving to impact the world through the outdoors and a little understanding.
