Need a reason to give to YBGR’s Back-to-School drive?  Just look to the graduates of Yellowstone AcademyPlease take a moment to read one recent graduate’s story.

A new crop of K-12 students will be entering or returning to Yellowstone Academy this fall.  A line of boys and girls hoping they will one day be receiving their own high school diploma.  They’ll have one-on-one help from YBGR’s special education teachers.  But they also need your support and the backpacks, paper, pens, and school supplies needed on their educational journey.

Your gift will make a difference and give YBGR students a better chance at reaching graduation.  Thank-you!

Learning to Fly

YBGR had the privilege of hosting a YoungLife Camp again this summer.

One of the most popular camp activities was the YBGR Challenges Ropes Course.  The course combines low rope elements for problem solving and high rope elements for trust and confidence building.  Youth gain insight from these activities that can be transferred to real-life.

For the YoungLife campers, the ropes course helped build strong bonds between peers.  The campers had to rely upon each other and work together to obtain their goal.  Campus rang with their shouts of support, motivation, and congratulation,  “Go!  You can do it!  Great job!  I knew you could do it!  That was amazing!”
