What will my child’s living situation be like?

Students live outdoors for their entire stay with constant care and supervision provided by Field Instructors and frequent visits from all levels of program leaders, medical professionals and therapists. We provide all of the gear, food and essentials necessary to thrive in the wilderness setting. While initially living in the wilderness can be intimidating for students, the peaceful, distraction-free environment allows students to focus on their therapeutic work much more effectively and experientially than other clinical settings. Visit our Daily Life page for more information about the typical student experience, and our Health and Wellness page to learn more about our students’ diet, nutrition, mindfulness and physical activity.
