True Colors

We give 14- to 18-year-olds the tools to make good choices

Classes, groups, and workshops in mind, relationship, heart, and spirit wellness focus on how well we understand ourselves, how we relate to those around us, our awareness of our emotions and feelings, and our sense of purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.

True Colors

Description

In our True Colors workshop, teens ages 14 to 18 discover inner resources they never knew they had and learn to apply these to making choices now, even in the face of peer pressure, to create the future they truly want.

Teens have a great time while making friends more quickly and easily than they would have believed possible. They learn:

  • To set goals for themselves and to solve problems together
  • The power of integrity and accountability
  • The fun of spontaneity and openness
  • The rewards of clear communication
  • How to make healthy choices
  • How to talk so adults listen
  • How parents think, and why they do what they do

In True Colors, teens take giant steps on the path toward adulthood. They learn how to be authentic and self-aware. They practice skills of self-compassion and reflection as they make new connections with others. They leave excited to be actively engaged in their lives, putting their new skills to work, deepening friendships, achieving goals, and becoming responsible leaders of their lives.

What does a workshop day look like? Any traditional camp elements? True Colors is a series of learning sessions with fun communication and team-building activities mixed in. Teens have a chance to get up and be physical both inside and outside the workshop rooms. They have adult-supervised free time each of the five evenings they are at True Colors. That’s when great conversations often develop. What your teen won’t find at True Colors: overnight campouts, long group hikes, or sitting around a campfire and singing.
