Every year, new innovations change the way we live, work, and experience the world around us. As our children grow up in a world of constant growth and technological advances, it’s more important than ever that they learn skills that will help them adapt to change. In fact, many colleges and employers are now naming (read more…)

Greenwood Trails is so excited to have so many of our staff returning this summer! We’ll be devoting Monday to meeting our staff… Meet Sophie (if you don’t already know her)!
Two summers ago, we began asking our staff to intentionally ask their campers questions about their feelings at the end of each day.
