- Personal Responsibility
- Problem Solving Skills
- Personal Strengths and Values
We believe in the therapeutic benefits that exist in removing ourselves from the distractions of our modern-day society and create an environment where nature is dominant and decisions have immediate consequences.Unlike boot camp/military programs, our therapeutic approach is to build upon our participants’ strengths, not to break down participants and then re-build. We see our participants are bright individuals, possessing various strengths, and we see the value in helping them recognize their individual strengths and build upon them.We differentiate ourselves in the industry by having a master’s level therapist in the field full time. All of our clients are willing participants who choose to take part. This perception of freedom and choice translates to higher levels of intrinsic motivation and greater success rates. We do not accept escorted participants; we are a hands off program, no restraints. Our therapeutic expeditions include three modes of transportation; paddling, backpacking and rock climbing.
