Below is our anticipated schedule of activities. The group will have limited access to phone and internet during the program. While we understand families are eager for news, we ask for patience as our staffs energy is focused on the students and the program at hand. Please do not call our office regarding these blogs, as the office does not control the postings or the content of the updates. Thanks very much for your understanding!
