PARENT OPEN HOUSE / TRAINING DAY FAQs

Click on the plus sign next to the questions below to see the answer.

May I bring my child(ren) to the Parent Open House/Training Day

Parents are encouraged to come “solo” and leave participants at home. If it is absolutely necessary to bring students, we will have some “light” activities in an adjacent room while parents are in their open house and training.

Why is the Parent Open House/Training required?

In order for students to receive a scholarship, it is mandatory for all parents to attend the Parent Training & Orientation. You will not only receive vital information about camp, but you will also be educated on issues surrounding trauma and its' influence on adolescent risk behaviors that affect the health and wellness of youth today through our “Trauma Informed Parenting” Training.

What happens if I skip or don't show up for the Parent Open House/Training Day?

Failure to attend will result in the revoking of the scholarship, and the remaining balance of the original camp price of $600 will be owed. Please refer to our refund policy for more details.

What if I have more questions?

CAMP REVIEWS

“Keys 2 Life has opened up many doors for me. It is why I do what I do
today. The leaders helped me understand what to look for in good music—not the music today based on drugs, alcohol, and sex, but the music that encourages and helps people. It gave me a voice in the world.”

Destiny S.

Student

“I love the Keys 2 Life Staff! Everyone was so nice to me. I have more
confidence to sing and dance now and really learned a lot about myself as a person. I’m not going to do some of the things that I used to that will keep me from reaching my goals.”

Chari T.

Student

“She really has stepped out of her box. Her social skills have really improved. She is much more vocal and confident and has taken her singing talent to a new level.”

Karlita Y.

Parent

“My son absolutely loved attending the Keys 2 Life Camp! I believe that he will always remember the principles that he learned. It was great! I hope that I am able to bring him again next summer.”
