Continuing the Family Experience

Jaywalker Lodge Mural Reveal

In this months Jaywalker Family Program we had four CeDAR alumni and one La Hacienda alum in attendance. The common theme among their family members was that our family program is a great follow-up from their previous experiences. It is very comforting to know that our family program in no way conflicts with what they’ve learned from our referent’s respective programs… we actually help reinforce what our families have learned from our referent’s programs. This month we focused on understanding and healing. Oyen referred several family program attendees to The Bridge to Recovery and/or On Site Workshops for additional work on their enabling and codependency. Four parents were in personal 12-step recovery; there were six fathers and seven mothers in attendance, making a very robust and well-informed group. We were hugging and laughing together at the culmination of this weekend…which is a measure of success!

Thankfully, I had Lodge Expedition Assistant Dave Krimstock to help me prepare.  The two of us got all the food ready, split the tents up, and packed the packs.  We got enough food to feed the equivalent of 30 normal people.  It was a lot of supplies (including shovels and heavy pick axes) to pack two miles up an inclined trail to get to base camp.  Luckily we had…
