We have served thousands of boys and girls, and young adults over the years. Our track record is proven with life changing results. Troubled teens can grow to be healthy adults, and struggling young adults can emerge as strong people who are motivated to succeed.
There Is Hope | We Can Help | Life Changing Results
Essentially, our synergistic approach combines the life-changing elements of a wilderness experience with the best of proven therapeutic practices. There are no words that properly capture or describe the magical transformation that our students experience while addressing their issues in a wilderness setting.
Our goal is to bring forth peace and restore emotional health. The purpose is to see your struggling boy or girl transition into adulthood, living independently as a strong person. The way to achieve the restoration is to harness the power of the wilderness. Why Wilderness? Troubled Teens and Young Adults.
