PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) –   Several Region 8 teens are at camp.   "Camp Opportunity" is this week at Crowley's Ridge Youth Camp. 

The camp is part of the wrap around services program that provides services to families whose youth are at risk of removal from their home, school, and community because of behavioral health issues.

Session Director Brad Barron says this program helps highlight certain behaviors that can change.  "It brings the behaviors out in real time and say ‘Let's see how that comment we made or that action we took, the attitude we just showed' how did that effect the group.

Barron says the activities and interactions help show that there are better choices to make. "They can continue to improve their choices and be more successful in life."

The camp will be taking place through July 20 and slots are still available.

If you are interested in the camp, you can contact Team 1 Group Development at 501-492-9481.  They are also on Facebook.
