The program that was offered from August20th to 24th in the Pines combined mindfulness practices with staff from Allies in Caring and nature experiences led by staff from Pinelands Adventures and the Pinelands Preservation Alliance.
Youth ages 12-15 participated in various activities built around nature with the goal to help the youth manage their emotions and respond positively to any obstacles or challenges that could come their way.
