The Rockbridge Ranger Adventure Guide is an exploration booklet for folks to get out and move. The current one is a thin 17 page 4"x6" booklet. It contains scavenger hunt style questions that the explorer must answer by going around to different locations in Rockbridge County to discover the answers. We would like to reuse most of the questions, but the overall look needs a facelift.
This project allows children and their families to bond over a specific challenging task. They get outside and go on an exploration scavenger hunt for information about their own home county of Rockbridge. They will discover clues about the history and heritage of this area and have fun while doing it. Getting folks outside is a major accomplishment, and when they complete the booklet, they get to become a Ranger of Rockbridge.
It is the mission of Rockbridge Area Community Services (RACS) to help prevent and treat mental illness, developmental disabilities, and substance abuse, and to enhance the quality of life of individuals who experience these conditions in the Cities of Buena Vista and Lexington and the Counties of Rockbridge and Bath, Virginia by providing individualized treatments, establishing and expanding programs and support systems, and promoting integration into the community.
Developed and governed by a Board of Directors representing each of the four localities served by our programming, RACS has grown along with the many communities it serves. Since 1982, RACS has been the primary resource for mental health, developmental disabilities, substance abuse, and prevention services in the Rockbridge Area. With offices and programs all over the Rockbridge Area and qualified, dedicated staff, we are available to meet the diverse needs of our communities.
