Approach: Welcome to Summer @ BYEP!

Summer Season Commence!

Hello Parents & Guardians of BYEP! Welcome to summer season 2019! If you are new to our blog, thanks for reading.  We post here on a weekly basis with photos and highlights of what groups have been up to. Last week 9th-graders got their hands chalky at Spire Climbing Center, while 10th-graders mountain biked to a waterfall in Big Sky. Check out photos of our first adventure here:

Meanwhile in Workshops

The first two weeks of workshop are all about getting reacquainted. We welcome new members, revisit expectations, identify goals, and focus on teamwork. Last week groups played a series of initiatives: flying high five, Dragon tag, gutter ball, and group sit (I think one group even challenged themselves to a human pyramid!) in an effort to reignite the excitement of being in BYEP. Over the next few months, members will be presented with opportunities to better understand themselves and others, develop lifestyle goals, improve their interpersonal communication, connect with nature, engage in physical challenges, and work on sharing and listening. 

If you know you know…

The online program calendar (link here: https://www.byep.org/programcalendar ) is the BEST way to access adventure times, locations, and specific instructions. If you’re not familiar with the system, don’t hesitate to reach out to our lovely program staff. As much as it is important for youth to feel a sense of belonging at BYEP, we want that for the people like YOU that support them as well. If you’re working towards a goal at home, let your program manager know how they can support you. If you have a piece of feedback, share it! We really appreciate the opportunity to grow and feel that guardian feedback is one of the most valuable ways to do so! Thanks for tuning in, check y’all next week!
