Orenda Fremont Summer June 2019 Camp

Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 1:30 AM

Overview: Do you ever feel like the advice you share with your teen goes in one ear and out the other?  Does your teen struggle with confidence or peer pressure? Does your teen do too many things at the last minute?  At Orenda, we've designed our program to help students be more productive, be more self motivated, and more socially confident. This 2 week summer program is for teens (Ages 13+) who have room for growth in these areas.  Students will gain critical skills to become more motivated, independent, and confident. They'll be surrounded by other students who are wanting to improve themselves, and join an alumni community of 100+ students.  For more about Orenda, check out our website.  Content:  By the end of the program, students will have learned: The basics of how to start conversations and build friendships with anyone The research-backed fundamentals to break bad and build good habits Best practices on reducing stress and bouncing back from failure Learn how to identify and set short, medium, and long term goals that they actually want to accomplish Identify and define values they want to live by regardless of what others around them say Gain tools and learn the mechanics of how productivity works Schedule: Or view the schedule online here.  Testimonials: Here's what students from past programs have said about our workshops: It really made me think about what values define me and it gave me something to contemplate. - Jennifer C. (2018) I'm now a lot more confident in my future than I was just yesterday. I have goals now and that's progress. Many people I know can benefit from several workshops here. - Annie L. (2018) It felt like I got a lot out of this program. Definitely going to be using this stuff. - Liao Z. (2018) The progression of the material this class teaches is in a way that is extremely beneficial to the student and easy to understand. Thank you for the actually useful class - Alvin L. (2018) The skills i have personally learned can be applied to virtually any situation that a teen might encounter. Thanks a million! - Annie W. (2018) I think that many kids these days need this program and information. The teachers are funny and open. I liked them right away. - Michael C. (2018) Parking and Venue: FAQs What makes Orenda different from other programs? We take student engagement more seriously than any program out there. We put the responsibility 100% on us to engage students, and if students are not interested in continuing to participate by the end the 2nd day of our program, we encourage and offer prorated refunds to families who want to opt out. Our workshops are relatable to students, we often show multimedia, have students “coach” the facilitators to practice the implementation of concepts they just learned, and often break out into small groups so students can learn from each other and dialogue with a facilitator. At the end of every workshop, we ask students to provide their honest feedback and immediately factor their responses into our next workshops. As of 2018, we have only had 1 student (out of 100) opt out because we failed to engage them. Our student / instructor ratio of 8:1 allows us to work with students in a much more way. What does tuition cover? Tuition covers curriculum, snacks, and lifetime access to alumni communities, activities, and free admission to participate in the same program again. Beyond offering workshops, Orenda seeks to help build a like-minded community for all participants in our programs. What does a typical workshop look like? All of our student workshops begin with 15 minutes of improv games to help students relax a bit, laugh a little, and open up. Over 2 hours, we will introduce concepts to students with illustrative videos, sharing metaphors and analogies, include 2-3 breaks so students can unwind, eat a snack, engage with other students, and a variety of small/large group discussions. We always close the last 10 minutes of the workshop with feedback so
