Sandy Point State Park
Each year, we plan a day at Sandy Point State Park for our residents. This started as a suggestion from residents a few years ago who said they wanted to take a trip to the beach. This summer, thanks to the support from our donors, our men were able to visit Sandy Point State Park again and enjoy a fabulous day outdoors.

The men enjoyed activities such as swimming, fishing, corn hole, cards, and good food prepared by our amazing kitchen staff. Being outside at the beach or park has numerous benefits for our men in recovery. While outdoors, they engage in activities that help reduce stress, improve their sleep, boost vitamin D and serotonin, and improve cognitive functioning. Various studies have shown that spending time outdoors can address symptoms of anxiety and depression by experiencing different sights and sounds in nature. Also, a change in scenery is crucial for maintaining good mental health. Improved mental health improves cognitive functioning which in turn can help with focus and problem-solving skills.

This year, a few of our board members and non-clinical staff were able to join in the fun. Incorporating outdoor activities into our resident’s schedules improves their overall physical and mental health and result in an enjoyable day in nature.
Out of this World Movie Night
Sponsored by The Baltimore Orioles
We hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as we did on August 26 at Bengie’s Drive-In Theatre for the showing of E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial. The night was filled with family fun with live music, face painting, raffles and food provided by Mission BBQ. We can’t forget the movie staples of popcorn and candy, especially our little alien friend’s favorite - Reese’s Pieces!

It was a night filled with nostalgic memories of sitting in the car watching a classic movie broadcast over your radio. For many attendees, this was their first drive-in movie ever.

We want to send a special thank you to our media sponsor WMAR who published two amazing stories about The Baltimore Station, our programs and the importance of fundraising events like this one. Click here to learn more.

Out of this World Movie Night raised over $20,000 (double from last year) which will directly support the men in our program.
