Denver Education Retreat

Event Description

Brushfire is hosting its first education retreat of the year from May 13-17. Bring your student to Denver for a week of classroom and field instruction, including two days at the Air Force Academy’s Leadership Reaction Course. Students work in teams of four to improve their reading, writing, and math skills in the classroom. Then it’s off to the Leadership Reaction Course for the critical thinking exercises (see a sample of the kids in action here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8BUPKXg9DI). We also teach them cryptography and land navigation because the other part of the exercise is to find boxes containing cryptograms that they must decode. All of this challenges their ability to multi-task and problem-solve. It’s also a time-management exercise – the team that finishes the course in the fastest time wins a cash prize. We only have space for 16 students and the age range is 13-18. Contact us for more details.
