Kudos & Kindness: Club Live says thank you
South Tahoe Middle School Club Live attended the REACH for the Future Conference, March 3-5, in Chico, California. Besides the drive, rustic cabins and hotel, there really wasn’t anything you couldn’t like. The conference was truly an amazing experience. At REACH there were activities, a ropes course and motivational speakers.
A wide variety of activities were included at REACH. One of the most important activities was the Challenge Day. Everyone was greeted by two amazing CD staff members. All participants were challenged to step out of their comfort zone for the weekend, as well as all of the time! By the time the activity ended all of us realized that we had been through many common things, and we weren’t alone.
During the conference we had the opportunity to experience a ropes course. We got to climb the tower and enjoy the “flying squirrel.”
According to Club Live co-advisor Beth Aiton, “It was wet and wonderful.”
All members were challenged to try something new.
There were several motivational speakers that shared important messages with the conference attendees. Club Live member Katie Coburn said they were “memorable and inspiring.” Each of them spoke about “never giving up,” “working together,” and “making good choices” as you follow your dreams.
For STMS Club Live this trip was a big success! Twenty-one youth and five adults were able to represent the chapter. This was the 20th year the club has attended the conference.
Club Live would like to thank all of the people that help make this trip possible including: school staff, administrators, parents, members, volunteers and advisors.
