Cool Kids Having Fun in Summer Resilience Program

Student Rock ClimbingThey were climbing to new heights in a summer program created to help students build confidence going into a new school year. More than 100 Jordan School District middle school students participated in a Summer Resilience Program organized by Pivot Adventure. During the 4-week course, cool kids get to have fun outside as they enjoy new adventure activities like rock climbing, building friendships and learning to problem-solve. The goal is for students to walk away with new coping skills when they encounter stressful situations during the school year and beyond.

Congratulations to the amazing students who participated and for the teamwork demonstrated over the course of the summer program. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
