This week is our quarterly Snicker tree.  Every quarter we place a bag of Snickers candy bars underneath a tree at zone.  Zone is where all the groups hike to for the end of the week. ( This makes it easier for therapy and logistics on Wed.)  Anyway, back to the Snicker tree.  The staff inform the group (or sometimes don’t inform them until they arrive at zone on Sunday night) that a Snicker tree is in the area.  Whichever group makes it to zone first is given GPS coordinates, sometime before the end of the shift to go locate the tree with the Snickers underneath.  We use this as an incentive to keep the groups hiking and functioning from week to week because they never know when they get to zone if there will be a Snicker tree waiting for them.  – Mark Noe, Director of Staff Services
