The core values of Thrive



Get outside, take in new sights and learn the joys of being in nature



We provide a safe space to feel, share, journal and learn tools for growth 



Have fun with your peers, meet new friends and build a community

The focus and discussions of each Thrive offering revolve around our 3 core principles: EXPLORE ~ GROW ~ CONNECT

Relationship to nature (EXPLORE)

Includes learning about our surroundings, noticing how we feel in nature and learning about ways to use time in nature as a coping skill.
Relationship to self (GROW)

Includes exploring how we feel about ourselves, how we are coping with life and any areas of support that we might be needing.

Relationship to others (CONNECT)

Includes looking into how we are feeling with our social interactions, any obstacles we have to connection and how to connect more authentically with others. 

"The workshop helped me feel more confident in myself and connected to the other participants. It helps to see they deal with the same problems as me."

- 12 year old participant

"It's so nice to send your kid out for a nature activity where you know they'll be able to safely express themselves and get support from a professional. My daughter is not usually into joining team sports and an activity like Thrive has been a great way for her to connect with other kids her age and build friendships outside of school."

- Parent of 8 year old participant
