Summit, Five Star Life’s 300-acre facility located in Union, Michigan, is the national training center for current and future leaders to come and be trained in Five Star Life’s Core Values and programming methods through experiential learning opportunities. Using this approach, students, educators, and groups can come to Summit, be trained, and take the Five Star Life model back to their communities all over America, thus continuing the ripple effect.
Summit gives students a chance to practice what they have learned throughout the year in a tangible, experiential way that extends beyond the school building. At a Day Trip, students are presented with opportunities to face their fears and put their leadership skills to test through various experiential learning opportunities that include: Equestrian Learning Center (in partnership with Michigan State University), Adventure Learning Center (high-low ropes course, rock wall), Target Learning Center (in partnership with USA Archery/US Junior Olympics), Nature Education Center (fishing, boating, swimming), Track Learning Center (go-karts) and Service Learning. Each leadership rotation is considered a classroom and is tied to the FSL curriculum so students are learning through experience with very intentional steps. There are values associated with each rotation that can change lives!
In addition, Summit gives Five Star Life the opportunity to serve local school districts and other nonprofit organizations that benefit and serve youth. Summit is the future of Five Star Life and has opened up endless possibilities for growth.
