SOAR exists to provide a fun and safe educational environment for elementary age students living in Northwest Arkansas.

SOAR partners with the following elementary schools: Parson Hills, Jones (Springdale), and Grace Hill. 

All sites are 21st Century Community Learning Centers. 


Parson Hills

Located off of 412 in Springdale Arkansas, our Parson Hills location was our first in-school program. 


Our Jones Elementary program occurs at the Jones Center for Families. It was the very first SOAR program that began in the Spring of 2013. 

Grace Hill

Grace Hill is our only Rogers SOAR program. It is also our newest 21st CCLC Grant recipient. 

SOAR stands for Service, Opportunity, Academics, and Recreation. 

We have six core values that we call the SOAR Six.

About Ben

I have been a member of the Camp War Eagle staff team since 2008. I served as an Ozone Director in Bentonville from 2008 to 2012. I served as the Site Director of our Jones Elementary SOAR location from 2013 to 2015. I graduated with a bachelors degree in Outdoor Leadership from John Brown University in 2008. I was selected to serve as the Ambassador for the State of Arkansas by the Afterschool Alliance. I have an incredible wife, Jen, and two amazing boys, Bryce and Brooks. My hope is that when you send your child to one of our SOAR locations you will know that you are sending your child to a program that will change their lives for the better. I believe that SOAR is more than just an after school program. I believe it is a place where students will learn to dream big, achieve much, and rise up. Please feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions, concerns, or just want to know more about SOAR.

Thanks! - Ben Rediske
