Adventure therapy programs is wilderness therapy combined with high adventure experience. Through an adventure experience troubled teens receive therapy and "experience" adventure in the wild outdoors. Adventure therapy programs are 30 to 90 days of intense therapeutic intervention through outdoor adventure. While in the outdoors troubled teens "experience" non-traditional therapy. Adventure activities include hiking, rock climbing, bouldering, canyoneering, kayaking, mountain biking, mountaineering, and more.
Experiential Therapy Through High Adventure
Adventure therapy activities are used as a tool to experience life in a new way. Adventure therapy is designed to reach a desired therapeutic outcome by testing the limits of the student. Similar to traditional wilderness programs troubled students live in the outdoors for extended periods of time where adventure activities become the primary tool for therapeutic change.
