Happy May!

We hope that your month has been off to a great start!

Below, we have some information about Mental Health Awareness Month, as well as an important update about our 2024 Level Up Camp.

     May is Mental Health Awareness month! In the United States, almost 1 in 5 people are trying to manage a mental health condition. That is a substantial portion of the population, and these individuals are now, more than ever, being recognized and supported. The negative stigma associated with mental health challenges is lifting. Increasingly, we are seeing less shame and more support for those who are struggling with their mental health. There is open conversation happening regarding seeing therapists and practicing self-care.

     We encourage every family to talk about the importance of being intentional in their mental health care. Here is a link to our Mental Health Guide which includes many good resources to help you understand different stages of mental health, find professional services close to home, and create a family plan that encourages early intervention.

     We are 35 days out from Level Up Camp! We’ve had a great response to our 2024 Level Up Camp registration, and a can’t wait to kick off another exciting camp season with you all.

Week 1 of our camp is now full, but week 2 spots are still available! Week 2 of our 2024 Level Up Camp will take place from June 24th to June 27th. You may also join the waitlist for Week 1 by emailing Sam Anker at [email protected]. If a spot becomes available, we will contact families on the waitlist in order of request received.
