Take Stock In Children and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches participated in the fifth annual Crossroads Adventure Camp experience.
From December 12th through December 17th all newly signed seventh and eighth grade Take Stock In Children scholars from Monroe County Schools traveled to the Sheriff’s Youth Camp in Inglis, Florida. Mrs. Katrina Wiatt, Assistant Project Coordinator for Take Stock In Children accompanied the group on their weeklong journey.
The Crossroads Adventure Camp is completely inclusive and offered at no charge to our students. The camp provides transportation, lodging, all meals, and seminars. Activities are designed to give students the encouragement needed to decide which paths to follow in life and to prepare for their post-secondary education. The curriculum offers a blueprint for planning the future. Several sessions focus on choices to help students become more prepared to make important life decisions concerning friendships, money, and leadership. In addition to the camp and all of these activities, students also enjoyed guided tours to Santa Fe College and the University of Florida in Gainesville.
The Monroe County Education Foundation, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and many supporters of Take Stock sponsor this trip because they believe in preparing our youth for success and the future.
