Good Times for Teens at Southmountain Estates

With the official beginning of summer, our teens at Southmountain Estates have been staying healthy and active, exploring the vast natural resources of our local national forest and wilderness areas on weekly hikes to waterfalls. Thanks to the leadership of our Recreational Therapy interns, they are also participating in weekly creative/ expressive art projects. Our enthusiastic interns are also planning a summer bash to celebrate the end of their internships.

Our teens have also been enjoying weekly cooking classes, where they make a menu, creatively based on resources available in our food pantry, then prepare and share a delicious, nutritious meal together. As C.S. Lewis says, “The sun looks down on nothing half so good as a household laughing together over a meal.” It is a sweet opportunity to share stories and build enduring memories.
