The Primary Goal at Re-Creation Retreat is to provide a safe, positive environment where each student is able to learn and apply the Principles of Accountability, Responsibility, Self Respect, Respect for Authority, and Self Motivation, and is thereby able to return to their homes, schools and communities with positive and lasting results. The efforts of our staff are totally focused on achieving this primary goal through the consistent application of the components of our program.
At Re-Creation Retreat we have developed a sound program that utilizes an holistic approach with the goal of modifying the child's behavior patterns while empowering the child to regain order and direction in their lives, as well as fostering a sense of self-worth and accomplishment.
To help each student build this vital foundation Re-Creation Retreat has developed a comprehensive program centered around three primary Objectives.
- Individual Improvement
- Individual Accountability
- Community & Others
By focusing on these three key Objectives we have developed a sound program to assist the student in developing vital academic, social, and vocational skills as well as learning to participate in community and physical activities.
Tools for Success
- Community Service
- Order & Discipline
Through an organized and deliberate process of Education, Therapy, Recreation and Community Service each student learns the benefits derived from positive life experiences and the setbacks that result from negative experiences. These Fundamental Tools are the building blocks upon which the child builds the foundation necessary for them to succeed in our program and to reunite back into their homes, schools and communities as positive and productive participants. By consistent application of these Five Tools by our staff each child is able to build on their strengths while learning an appreciation of the positive aspects of self control and self discipline.
Order & Discipline
Just as it takes time for a child's life to become disordered and undisciplined, it also takes time to regain order and discipline. Through a deliberate and consistent process of communicating rules and applying consequences each child learns acceptable behavior patterns and how to bring order into their lives. Simply put, Discipline is Learning. At Re-Creation Rules and Expectations are clearly taught to each child and negative consequences are applied for violations. When the child's behavior is according to expectations, positive consequences follow.
