One therapeutic benefit of Shepherds Hill Academy, simply put, is the outdoor environment.
Parents don’t realize that it doesn’t take a ministry like Shepherds Hill to bring their kids outdoors.
No, parents regularly schedule outdoor activities for the family to participate in together.
Believe it or not; when mom and dad join Junior in outdoor activities, then the parent/child relational lottery has been won.
Our team experiences this regularly at Shepherds Hill.
This is especially true if the outdoor activity is somewhere quiet and serene—perhaps in the woods, next to a lake or stream, or maybe even on a mountain top.
Nature is God’s playground.
A campfire in the evening can help open up deep conversation and ideas about things that other environments just aren’t suited for.
Just decide to do it. You’ll kindle more than flames spending time with your kids around a campfire—or anywhere outside. You will be kindling memories and relationships that will last a lifetime.
