Six Flags Trip

In early June, several of our Waco campus residents enjoyed a day of fun at Six Flags. The recreation department offered the trip for all of our "Off Steps" youth (for an explanation of Off Steps see below).

There is nothing quite like rewarding positive behavior with a fun day of rides and carnival food! Our youth and staff had a wonderful time on all the roller coasters and adventure rides. MCH residents Brittany and Kat even found two new "furry" friends!

Special thanks to Waco campus recreation coordinator, Matthew Maron for this photo.

What is Off Steps?
Off Steps is the final level on MCH's accountability and opportunity program, Steps to Success. The program works within our strengths-based philosophy of care to place youth on the appropriate level or "step" based on their attitude and behavior. Youth who achieve the Off Steps level are some of the best role models to other residents.
