I would like to personally extend a heartfelt “Thank You” to all of our students, parents, and community who have reached out to us to offer support, suggestions, and even just well wishes. We are in this for the long haul and our staff are working hard to keep our community connected.
Many of you have asked how you can help – which is utterly appreciated in this challenging time for all small businesses and also for you, our community.

Here are some ideas of how you can help Guardian Adventures:

* Leave a raving 5 star review on Google, Facebook, or Yelp
* Engage with our posts on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram and share information about our cool new online classes and events
* Sign up for or tell your friends about our Spring Break Adventures which will be running via Google Classroom if the quarantine is still in effect
* Send us an email with a testimonial about what you like about Guardian Adventures so we can use it in our marketing

During the quarantine, all of our staff are still fully employed by our company. So every little thing you can do to help out is appreciated!

We have also had some members ask about upgrading to more classes or inviting their friends to try a class. These are absolutely possible. The procedures are essentially the same as if we were not running virtually. In order to add or upgrade to another class, you would talk to your instructor to see if the class is a good fit. If so, we would set up a semi-private Google Classroom lesson where you would meet with the new class instructor and then after, try the class out. If everything goes well, you will fill out the online Change Form to add the class and our billing department will take it from there.

The process is essentially the same for your friends who want to try out a class. They would purchase a Trial Package and we would set them up with 2 online semi-private lessons and classes to see if they want to join. We are looking into having our vendors send the swords or NERF blasters directly to them as part of the Trial Package. If this isn’t possible, we will have it available for pick up as soon as the castle is open again.

We are also providing the following 2 free online events for our community and your friends. We will be adding more over the coming weeks as we work to give you a place to belong in this time of isolation.

Thank you again for all of your help in keeping our wonderful community thriving and connecting.  We are confident that we will all weather this tough time together by reaching out and staying involved.  We can be secluded but not isolated.  All we have to do is open our hearts and offer our (virtual) hand.

In last Wednesday evening’s Junior Instructor Traning Program, our instructors and our teens had a lengthy conversation about the values and key points of effective communication. What makes communication succeed or fail? Why is it important? What does effective communication look or sound or feel like?

The students had excellent answers, like “explaining your opinion with respect to the other’s,” “staying calm, even when upset,” and “speaking directly to the other person, not around them.” Then, one student made an intriguing point: The way we share our ideas is only one half of the story, one half of effective communication. The second half is letting the other party share what they think, taking it in, and acting upon what they’ve added to the conversation. This was the real lesson the instructors were trying to teach.

In that spirit, Guardian Adventures is committed to effective communication with our members, campers, and their supportive families. Our weekly UpDates are our way of letting you all know what’s going on with us. But effective communication, as our young hero pointed out, is a two-way street. That’s why we’re implementing a new feature into our weekly newsletters.

Beginning today and moving forward, our UpDates will host a weekly question with an open ended answer section for our customers. This is an opportunity not only for our heroes and their families to tell us what they think, but for us to act that information and improve every aspect of what we do. You are our most valuable allies, and we want to know what is important to you.

So, without further ado, let us present our first weekly customer question. We’re excited to hear what you have to say. And, as always, thank you for all the incredible support these last twenty years. Go Go Guardians!
