During an overnight retreat to YMCA Cedar Glen, they can put their trust and communication skills to the test on both high and low rope challenge courses and rock climbing wall. They also have the opportunity to volunteer at a YMCA Day Camp based on successful completion of the program and an interview. Community service hours for school may also be earned this program.
