Project Description

Social Opportunities and Recreation (SOAR) provides families, with children ages 12 – 21 enrolled in middle and high school, with three program options at various locations throughout St. Charles County: Teen Club, Break Camp, and Summer Camp.

All three program options are provided within an engaging, fun, safe, and supervised environment where the children are encouraged to enhance their independence, as well as their communication, socialization, and job/life skills.

SOAR not only provides children with a program that fosters relationship building but also assists parents with maintaining employment while increasing family stability.
