Door County Medical Center (DCMC) sponsors the inaugural Power Up! youth adventure series. This eight-week workshop kicks off a summer of dynamic programing meant to empower teens to explore health and wellness in ways they never imagined. DCMC physicians and clinical staff alternate leading individual programs with local community experts. Participants can expect nature hikes, visual art, outdoor yoga, equine coaching, music, dance and more.
Power Up! is open to teens ages 13-18. Classes begin June 20 and run every Wednesday evening from 6-8 pm, with a break over July 4. The workshops take place at various venues within Sturgeon Bay, with the exception of Equine Guided Coaching at Leline Farm in Baileys Harbor. Power Up! is one of three youth health and wellness initiatives meant to engage participants from a holistic perspective. Additional free Summer 2018 programing includes Art on the Wild Side, which gives children ages 6-12 the opportunity to focus on music and art using performance, demonstrations and other fun activities. Programs are planned July 2-6 in Algoma, July 9-13 and July 16-20 at the Southern Door Auditorium, with all classes from 9-11 am.
During JUMP Theater, participants develop and perform theater productions which offer alternatives to destructive behavior and deliver positive messages. JUMP runs every Tuesday July 17 – Aug. 28.
Space is limited for these programs; call 920.493.5979 to register. Participants of Power Up! must sign up for all eight workshops.
