How do you prepare students for post-camp life?

Preparation for post-camp life begins on Day 1 of their involvement at the program. Everything we do sets students up to better manage their mental health and social engagement after wilderness. Experiential learning teaches students self-efficacy, resiliency, and emotional attunement, all of which are primary tools in post-camp success. (See Why Wilderness)

At the end of their stay at Blue Ridge Therapeutic Wilderness, students and their families may participate in our Transition Program when it is clinically recommended by the Primary Therapist. During the Transition Program, students and their families have the opportunity to reunite in the wilderness setting and reflect upon their therapeutic journey with BRTW.
