Communication with peer groups and adults is crucial to thriving and success for youth today. Camp Fire’s InterACTION focuses on healthy communication skills and helping youth learn simple conflict resolution approaches. Camp Fire Gulf Wind, Inc., has successfully completed InterACTION courses in several schools in Pensacola and Milton. This free, six-week course gives youth the tools they need to navigate today’s social environment. Our InterACTION programs in Pensacola and Milton have been quite successful.
Developed for middle school youth, InterACTION recognizes that changes in friendships, increased interaction with adults, and more complicated peer relationships create complex communication challenges for young teens. Middle school youth are often navigating emotional upheavals while they’re coping with physical changes — not easy for anyone, let alone a youth without coping skills.
InterACTION helps youth communicate more effectively by avoiding communication pitfalls, understanding how body language impacts the meaning of their words, and recognizing that depending on the medium used (text, phone, in person) they need to adjust their messages. And — most important — through InterACTION youth learn about peer pressure, both good and bad, and how to prevent conflict. Camp Fire delivers quality programming designed for today’s youth and teens.
