TourMIHighfields Tours Michigan!

   What are some of your favorite things to do in Michigan in the summer?  Go to a Tigers Game? Spend the day at Michigan's Adventure? Visit the State Capital? How about all of the above?
   These are just a few of the exciting activities our students have been able to do this summer.
   "I feel special," said student Tyree. "A lot of kids don't get the chance to see these things. Even though I'm in placement, it's nice to get rewarded."

"We're Not Alone"

There are so many benefits to Family Treatment Weekends. Bringing families together and strengthening relationships is what Highfields is all about! Read on to learn more about this impactful summer program.

   Every year, Highfields' residential staff put their minds together to create an exciting and memorable Family Treatment Weekend.
   "We try to think of activities that incorporate family fun and problem solving," said Chris Jurasek, Residential Services Manager.

Coaching On and Off the Court

Thanks to generous donors at our Golf Outing, our residential students participated in one week of basketball camp! Maurice Benson from Games Solid Skills Training took the opportunity to coach the boys in more ways than one.

   "One of the most influential people in my life was my basketball coach in high school," said Maurice Benson, Founder of Game Solid Skills Training. "Looking back, a lot of the conversations we had weren't even about basketball. They were about making the right decisions."
