This summer, get back to living
For many, the idea of a summer break is a distant memory. Something that was enjoyed back in the school days. Back before jobs, kids, bills, and a million other things stepped in the way. But isn’t it crazy that actually living life has taken a backseat to just getting through life? We think so.
With that thought in mind, we have made some changes to our beloved Summer Intensive course that will make it easier for you to get back to spending summers how you used to … by enjoying them.
Here is some helpful information about Summer Intensive 2017 that we think will get you excited about the year ahead.
