It's a whole lot of fun, but more than just play....
We are an Adventure Recreation & Equestrian team dedicated to delivering fun, safe and kinetic experiences to the youth we serve. We believe in challenge and play. We believe by reconnecting to the fundamentals of childhood, we can provide an outlet for growth, healing, success and reconciliation.
The Adventure Recreation and Equestrian Program promote acceptance and choice, while interlacing all we do within New Directions’ Normative Culture including the four-norms of safety, respect, responsibility & goal directed living.
As facilitators, we understand that growth takes place when we are safely challenged beyond our perceived limits. The transfer of peak experiences into daily life is where the opportunity to play becomes transformed into sustained healing and interpersonal learning.
Whether we are kayaking, horseback riding, playing basketball, volunteering or making a chalk mural, we find success in our program through the small moments of self-discovery, laughter and the calm in experiential processes.
New Directions fosters two Adventure Recreation Departments located on the Randolph & Wyndham Residential Campuses. Our departments provide 7 days a week, year round activities to residential youth and customized programming for our non-residential clients. Such custom programs include High & Low Challenge Courses, Horseback Riding Lessons, Cross Country Skiing, Mommy & Me Swim Lessons.etc.
