The new year is underway and the Project Lifelong division of the Sheriff’s Community Impact Program (SCIP) has begun packing bags for adventure!
As we roll into the new year, SCIP is proud to announce that it will offer more inspirational programs than ever before. Project Lifelong is anticipating the launch of two new programs not just unique to our organization, but unique to the entire state of California. In addition to the continuation of our skateboarding chapter, 2017 will see the launch of a one-of-a-kind Disc Golf program as well as an outbound excursion series.
Disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and continues to be on the rise. The greater Sacramento area plays host to more than 10 courses, while our state has more than 200 courses to offer. Organizations such as the Professional Disc Golf association (PDGA) continue to see growth as they approach 100,000 members. SCIP will throw its hand in the ring by providing a program that takes teenagers to play a variety of northern California disc golf courses this summer. Members in this program will work at their skills on the course while working together to host disc golf clinics in our area for those younger than them.
The outbound adventure program has been a longtime goal for the SCIP organization. Our partnership with the Mission Oaks Recreation & Park District (Swanston Community Center), allows SCIP to offer a multitude of outdoor experiences for members to enjoy while building self-confidence in our participants. Each excursion is designed to expose youth to the extensive variety of outdoor recreation that our region has to offer while instilling values of environmental stewardship. This program will host activities like camping, ATV riding, hiking and rock climbing to name a few.
