Three New Courses This Summer
Dr. Rob Cooley, of the Catherine Freer Therapeutic Wilderness Program in Oregon will be offering THREE NEW COURSES this summer in
addition to their usual program -- a two-week Indian living skills course for younger boys age 10-13; a three-week co-ed white water
rafting camp; and a three-week weight loss expedition.
Northwoods Trailside School
David and Meg Yeats, owners of Northwoods Trailside School, Bonners Ferry, Idaho, have had several "10-weeks kids" with them this
fall and winter providing a productive break from and subsequent return to their schools back home.
Galena Ridge Looks Just About Full
Galena Ridge, Trout Creek, Montana looks just about full now with their 4th and 5th students coming on board in January. Paul and
Cheri opened the doors of their home at Galena Ridge last summer and inquiries from consultants continue. During the school year they
screen for students who can make some level of commitment to working on change and growth. Their summertime wilderness students need
not be so agreeable initially.
Warner Mountain School Opens
The newly opened Warner Mountain School, Fort Bidwell, California looks to be on the verge of its first crew of students because of
their seasoned staff, wide open spaces, and some scholarshiping possibilities. They can be reached through Jim McLaughlin at 916-279-2109.
Elk Mountain Academy Recently Opened
Karl and Loretta Olding of the recently opened Elk Mountain Academy, Clark Fork, Idaho have their first three students coming across
the threshold. Their cozy, rural, rustic home, which Karl helped build, will be the program's base of operation for students needing
a self-contained academic program as well as the opportunity to attend the local public high school as is appropriate. They will be
breaking ground in the spring for a second house that will accommodate 6 more adolescent boys. They plan to remain "smallish."
Eagle Mountain Outpost Has New Director
Paul Corrick recently succeeded Brenda Hammond as director of Eagle Mountain Outpost, Sandpoint, Idaho. Brenda decided to hand over
the main reins this winter. After a well-deserved two week vacation to the coast, Brenda plans to return in most likely a teaching
and admissions role to a school that captured her heart, she reports, from day one. Paul returns to N. Idaho from Albany, Oregon with
lots of energy and ideas for the Outpost and extensive experience with struggling adolescents. Gabriel Rivera, co-owner with his wife
Anne, of TREX, INC., BEND, OREGON recently took a break and drove part of the Northwest circuit of schools and programs (including
N. Idaho) to touch base with friends, make some new ones, and share ideas. Richard Armstrong, owner of Boundarylines, Bonners Ferry,
Idaho continues to provide interim care services for adolescents and stays on the road (or in the air, more exactly) to all parts
of the U.S and most recently Tokyo.
Recently Announced Arrival Of Their New Daughter
Steve and Karen Gage, owners of Royal Haven Transports, Sisters, Oregon recently announced the arrival of their new daughter, Stephanie,
who temporarily took the wind out of dad's transporting sails. It's the first time Lon and Linda have heard Steve sound tired for
a few days there. Congratulations, Karen and Steve!
