Introducing a half-week Special Youth Camp focusing on Healthy Sexuality
Youth in grades 10 through 12 are invited to join us from Sunday, July 21st at 2pm till Wednesday, July 24th at 11am as our experienced faciliators offer a sexuality program that will empower and inspire them to explore their attitudes and values, their feelings about themselves and their sexuality, and their attitudes toward others’ sexuality. This camp will include the Senior High Our Whole Lives Program with added on retreat activities (such as movie screenings with discussions and our “healthy messages scavenger hunt”). We will offer some afternoon time to rest and enjoy the fun that Ferry Beach has to offer!
For those of you not familiar with comprehensive Our Whole Lives Program, the engaging curriculum for older teens addresses topics including Language, Examining Values, Body Image, Sexual Response Cycle and Sexual Functioning, Sexual Health Care, STDs, Contraception, Condoms and Negotiating for Safer Sex, Sexy Safe Fantasy, Gender Roles, Gender Identity, Sexual Orientation, Conception and Pregnancy, Sexuality and People with Disabilities, Sexual Expressions and Relationships, Verbal and Non‐verbal Communication, What Makes a Good Relationship, Intimacy, Masturbation Myths and Facts, Images of Love and Sex in Music and Video, Power and Responsibility, Power in Relationships, Breaking UP and Moving On, Abortion, New Reproductive Choices, Sexual Exploitation and Harassment, Date Rape, and Social Issues. For our add-on retreat, we will spend our evenings watching popular movies that will allow us to more deeply explore the current complicated issues in our social world today and some time each afternoon engaging in art projects and games that help us going deeper exploring healthy relationships.
This class can complement any lessons learned in the Junior High Our Whole Lives class, but you do not have to have taken that to greatly benefit from this version for older kids who are really ready to talk and consider how to make healthy choices in today’s complicated social world.
