BlueFire Wilderness Therapy can be a great alternative to summer camps for struggling teens from Wyoming. We offer a therapeutic setting which provides many of the same fun adventures individuals experience at summer camps. During their time at BlueFire, clients participate in a variety of outdoor activities such as backpacking, kayaking, and whitewater rafting.

We have rolling admissions throughout the year. Summer Camps For Troubled Teens Wyoming

BlueFire Wilderness is 1.5 hours from Boise, Idaho. We help families from all over the country, including Wyoming.

In a matter of several weeks, your child will experience positive, long lasting changes that are transferable to the real world after your teen leaves treatment. We help students better understand who they are as individuals and get them one step closer to discovering and achieving their goals.

Equine Therapy Programming Encourages Relationship and Communication Skills

At BlueFire Wilderness, we utilize several therapeutic techniques to help clients become more aware of the ways in which their behaviors affect others. One of those therapeutic techniques – equine therapy – allows teens to form close bonds with a non-judgmental, completely objective being.

Horses are very social creatures. If an individual is uneasy around them, their behaviors will reflect that. If a teen is very depressed or anxious, horses can sense those feelings. Because of this, clients become sensitive to the behaviors of the horse they are around.

Equine therapy can:

  • Regulate emotions
  • Build confidence within teens
  • Help promote responsibility

Resources

MentalHealth.gov  : Website of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, MentalHealth.gov is another federal resource with information on mental illness. Unlike many other websites, MentalHealth.gov groups its mental illnesses into categories (such as mood disorders or personality disorders) rather than listing the disorders themselves. Ways to help are also discussed in depth.
HelpGuide : Specifically designed as an easy read for both parents and their children, HelpGuide contains various explanations and warning signs for a wide range of parenting situations. While the scope of the website exceeds mental illness alone, the guides to the most common danger signs can prove invaluable to parents of a troubled child.
