Advantages Of Choosing Wilderness Therapy For Your Teen
Summer camps are full of distractions, but this isn't a problem during wilderness therapy. Our programs at WinGate Wilderness Therapy stay focused on addressing the problems a troubled teen has been facing. We are totally immeresed in the needs that your teen is experiencing.
Summer camps often employ staff members who have little experience in helping troubled teens. This makes it difficult for lasting improvement to be achieved. Our wilderness therapy programs only employ experts with a great deal of experience in their field. With an experienced staff of field workers and therapists, your troubled son or daughter will get the help they need on a 24/7 basis.
Most summer camps, even if they offer some sort of therapy intervention, are limited by what they can do. With a large number of participants and inadequately trained staff, they are limited in what can be accomplished.
Wilderness therapy programs such as we provide at WinGate, provide a number of different therapy options that can all be effective in helping teens overcome their issues. These types of therapy are not available in a summer camp program, but are the main reason we exist.
Summer camps can be fun. WinGate Wilderness Therapy can be effective. We can help your troubled from California take the path to recovery and restoration.

Why Summer Camps in California Are Less Effective Than Wilderness Therapy
The staff at summer camps often don't have the expertise needed to deal with teens experiencing serious problems. Even though the staff at a summer camp may be very well meaning, their lack of training and background prevents them from giving the support and guidance your son or daughter needs.
Summer camps for troubled teens simply don't have the necessary resources needed to provide the therapy necessary for recovery of teens who are experiencing real difficulties. This is an incredibly important part of the recovery process and shouldn't be ignored.
Most trouble teens with serious problems need a reasonable amount of time in a program to experience lasting results. Summer camps last for such a short time that they often end up sending troubled teens home before they fully recover. This allows the troubled teen to slip back into the poor habits they previously had.

Violence and Teens in America Today
The growing epidemic of troubled teenage violence goes way past just the big cities of America and infiltrates virtually every single community without regard for wealth status (the rich and the poor). Just 30 years ago the rate of 14 to 19 year old arrests went was 5 per 1000 and today is up to 125 per 1000 teens get arrested in that age range.
Because of the intense and prolific amount of violence in our communities and city streets throught the country, teens are left without guidance and encouragement. This becomes an outlet for crime and especially violent behavior. One common thread that is prevalent among violent teens is the lack of a father or father/male role model. The absence of a father figure has consequences that are felt throughout the community and the nation. As parents and guardians of our young men and women we must be aware of this issue and recognize that unless we act now, it will only get worse.
We see these alarming numbers at Wingate Wilderness Therapy and we know that we can help many of these teens that are struggling in todays violent environment. For immediate reasons how we can help, please call (800) 560-1599.
