Open Enrollment and Custom Adventure Programs

Waypoint implements programs in two formats. We call them "open enrollment" and "custom" programs. Regardless of whether Waypoint programs are open to the general public or custom designed for a group, programs always focus on a theme - building community, challenging oneself, the importance of asking for and giving help and support, appreciation of nature and others. Waypoint's custom programs are collaborative efforts with schools such as Boston Public Schools and Perkins School for the Blind and social service agencies serving people with all types of disabilities. We collaborate with teachers and social workers to design curriculum that support specific themes such as social, character and community goals.
