Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, June 11, 2014 7A James Wilson Sports Editor Last weekend, local youths took one more step toward creating their own unique path in life. The inaugural Unpave Youth Retreat took off at the UC Berkeley Forestry Camp in Meadow Valley, with the aim of drawing out the creative and unique qualities in its participants. The ideology of Unpave Youth is that individual people have countless possibilities and roads they can take in their life journeys, and the route they decide upon doesn't have to be a pre-paved one taken by someone else before them. The retreat aimed to nail this point home through workshops, hikes, group activities and general fun. Jon Dvorak, manager of the UC Berkeley Forestry Camp, jumped on the idea of hosting the event when it was presented to him. "We've held the sixth-grade outdoor education program here for quite some time, but that's been the only local program at the camp," said Dvorak. "I wanted to start more of a local outreach. I would like to see this camp continue and go forward for years to come." This year's retreat attracted 31 campers, including nine youth leaders. The retreat was created as an addition to programs the participants have been involved in at school, including the Bully Project, Bystander Intervention and Positive Behavior Intervention Supports. "What the camp intended on doing is creating a safe place of inclusiveness and self-discovery and connections," explained Unpave Youth Retreat's director, Trina Ritter. "Not only among the youth, but I'm hoping they leave with more adult allies in their life." A group of adults in the community who pride themselves on their forward thinking volunteered their time and resources at the camp last weekend. Adult-led activities included an art journaling workshop led by Michelle Beaman and a low ropes challenge course to build teams among the participants led by Jennifer Kauffaan Ready. The adult allies, as they are called, reached out to the campers to let them know they aren't alone in their journeys. Once the retreat ended, the participants, ages 13 - 17, left with more than just fond memories. A zine (small-circulation magazine) was produced at the camp as a collaboration of different ideals and creative outputs. The retreat was made possible through a multi-agency collaboration. Women's Mountain Passages, Plumas County Public Health Agency, Plumas County Alcohol and Drug Services, The Resource Center, 20,000 Lives, California Friday Night Live and the UC Berkeley Forestry Camp all partnered to hold what they hope will become an annual event. Participants in the inaugural Unpave Youth Retreat let loose June 6 at the UC Berkeley Forestry Camp in Meadow Valley. The two-day Camp taught leadership skills to youths from Quincy High School, with an emphasis on paving one's own path in life.
