Making it a Lifestyle Change
TDP youth are immersed in a nature-based experience that equips them with knowledge and skills while providing them with a solid foundation of fitness for life. Our health instructor and mentors encourage students to move forward with the initiative to make healthier and more responsible choices.
Youth leaving the program are encouraged to continue contact with TDP instructors/mentors regarding their individual health, fitness, and nutritional needs.
It is our TDP goal that healthy practices will become a natural way of life for youth, improving their health, well-being, and overall future. Our youth will not only be healthier and more physically fit, but will experience a greater sense of self-worth. We believe strongly that the TDP Health and Wellness experience enhances relationships with family members, friends, and community.
