Aryeh United: Northwest!
This is an amazing, rip-roaring adventure to the Pacific Northwestern US. It wouldn't be an Aryeh trip without National Parks, and on this trip we're visiting some of the most awe-inspiring ones in the country! Participants will experience the action and see the wonders of Olympia NP, Mt. Rainier NP, Lassens Volcanic NP, and the majestic Crater Lake NP. Plus we're going on an incredible caving adventure in Oregon Caves National Monument. On top of all that we will be going to two theme parks, the famous Seattle Space Needle, a chocolate factory tour, Alcatraz, a tour of CenturyLink Field (home of the Super Bowl winning Seahawks), the Jelly Belly Factory, and do Class IV whitewater rafting!
United is open to high schoolers finishing grades 9-11 who will come on the trip as mentors, but no more than 20 will be accepted onto the program. Approximately 10-15 campers with some special needs, who are between the ages of 14-21, will also be accepted onto the trip. Our goal is for these individuals to form lasting friendships with our other Aryeh campers and our mentors, providing them with a sincere feeling of social inclusion.
United is intended for high functioning individuals with special social, mental and/or emotional needs. If you feel your child might be a candidate to be a camper on Aryeh United please contact us. Scholarships are available for all campers on a need basis. This is a not for profit program in every single sense. Our goal is to create a warm, altruistic environment where Midot Matter Most and every single day is filled with happiness and adventure!
