Derry TAG will be the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month from 4 to 6 pm, and then the 4th Saturday of the month from approximately 10 am to 5 pm for the adventure trip. All meetings will begin at 5 Tinkham Ave in Derry (in Journey Churches Board room).
The cost is $65.00 a month per participant. This will cover snacks, rental space, transportation, adventure day fees, instructor fees, and insurance. There is an option to purchase the entire calendar year for an $80.00 savings.
The group is not exclusively about learning wilderness survival. It is about learning stress reduction, coping, and self worth. It is fluid and dynamic, and the participants themselves play a role in dictating the direction the group takes. The core curriculum will revolve around the Big 5 principles of survival, the Rules of 3, and the 6 C's. What we do will not focus on how these things work strictly in a wilderness survival setting, but more in our everyday life. The group, at its heart, is about navigating through life with an open mind, a positive attitude, and real world leadership skills.
