Trees Are Good for Teens

"I can just tell that going outside with The Launch Pad is good for my brain," said 16 year old RJ of The Launch Pad Teen Center in response to the question, "Why do you like Adventure Camp at The Launch Pad?"  Turns out, RJ is right, according to The American Psychological Association, spending time outdoors reduces anxiety and restores our ability to concentrate and pay attention.  

A great way to help your teen connect with nature, embark on adventure, make new friends, and reap the mental health benefits of being outdoors, is to register them for The Launch Pad Teen Center's Adventure Camp. 

During Adventure Camp teens will go horseback riding, hiking, canoeing, rock climbing, and so much more.  To learn more and register your teen contact The Launch Pad's program staff at
