Voyage to Resilience IslandTM, as military kids embark on a high seas adventure! As kids set sail around the pirate island hideaway, at Resilience Island, they’ll learn tools and tips to develop the skills of resilience and
discover the adventure of the military life! This easy to use, effective, and fun outreach program is exactly what your family readiness program is looking for.
How it works On the Voyage to Resilience Island, school age children become Crew Members & form small groups of up to 25 kids (a Crew). Each Crew has a Captain– or an adult or teen leader. Crews rotate through 5 stations, or Ports of Knowledge, during a single event and the Passport to Adventure Creed is reinforced at each station throughout Resilience Island in creative ways.
At Marauder’s Beach Crew Members learn their role during
deployment as they discover personal responsibility and
teaches kids that every family member plays an active role in a successful deployment.
Swashbuckler’s Lagoon field games and active play encourages communication and teambuilding through fun, interactive pirate games.
Blackbeard’s Locker unleashes creativity and personal expression as Crew Members create a Deployment Treasure box– a useful tool that encourages families to stay connected during deployment.
Buccaneer’s Bluff helps Crew Members learn the foundation for understanding deployment by exploring the Earth in which they live and gives them a chance to change the lives of children in their community, building a sense of empowerment through local community service projects.
Darkwater Falls encourages Crew Members to navigate the oceans of emotion that deployment brings when kids learn about their feelings through an interactive and familiar game.
