We recently had our Parent 201 seminar at Diamond Ranch Academy, at this seminar the parents get to try some of the experiences that their students have been apart of in the past few months. One of which is the bowdrill, this is not as easy as it looks! Here are couple of the guys that gave it a shot. 
The students are able to help get the parents started, then they get to sit back and watch them struggle, get frustrated, and experience the joy that comes with getting the fire

 Here is one dad that started off really well. 

Then we had a couple guys where their hard work and determination paid off and they got fire!

Teamwork Games

This week at DRA we had one of our students setup a benefit. He was planning it for part of his service towards others and building teamwork skills. As you can see from the pictures it was a hit and the students were able to build the relationships and learn about teamwork through the team based games that they were playing. 
 Here they are with the cookies that were offered as prizes for the teams that did the best in different areas including, best communication, best sportsmanship, etc..
 Here is one of the teams that were playing after winning a round! 
Here they are hoisting the student on their shoulders and thanking him for organizing such a fun event! Thanks Andrew!!!!
