Chicago Adventure Therapy
2018 marks our 10th program season. We’re looking back in order to look forward.
Monthly photo contests
At the beginning of every month this year, we’re posting a photo album to Facebook with our 10 favorite photos from one year – and asking you to vote for your favorite. We’ll be posting the winner on the 15th of each month. In November, we’ll post the winner from each of our first 10 years, and ask you to choose the best photo from our first decade of programming. Here’s March’s winner, from our 2010 program season.
PS – the initial voting ended in a tie – here’s the other photo that was in the tie, before the paddling photo won by a landslide in the tie-breaker voting contest…
We’ve been interviewing CAT youth and leaders. Every week, we’re bringing you videos sharing what they have to say about CAT. We’ll have different theme each month. To see all the videos, you can watch on our YouTube channel or our Facebook page. January’s theme was Adventure. Here’s the first video in February’s theme – Leadership.
February Video – “Leading with Humility”
