BlueFire Wilderness Therapy program combines a family focused therapeutic model with engaging outdoor adventures to allow troubled teens to realize their full potential. Initially teens may struggle with the removal of the unhealthy and continuous stimulus found in excessive video gaming, and use of social media, but through wilderness therapy they will find a new, supportive peer group who share their struggles with emotional and behavioral problems and learn to reconnect with their environment.

During their time at BlueFire clients will acquire back-to-basic skills like orienteering and fire building. These new skills not only breed increased self-confidence but also teach important lessons about the unnatural state of alienation teens may be experiencing; no one exists successfully in isolation. Connecting with and utilizing the stunning environments of Southern Idaho will inherently lead towards the rejoining and repairing the family unit itself. The focus on the connectedness of the entire family unit is great at BlueFire to ensure the continuation of positive progress for clients once they have left the wilderness therapy program

At BlueFire highly trained staff work with small groups of troubled teens to ensure a tailor-made approach to their personal needs and safety of the clients while they undertake exciting new adventures like horse riding and rock climbing.

Wilderness Therapy Vermont Teens Find Success With

At BlueFire Wilderness Therapy, Vermont teens receive a tailor made treatment plan based on their specific needs. No two troubled teens are identical, nor are the environments they have come to a wilderness therapy program from. This is why at BlueFire the client is in charge of what they want to get out of their time with us. Arbitrary and excessive restriction at other programs may lead to teens merely mimicking what they believe is desired of them rather than real long term change that is restorative to the family unit.  Wilderness Therapy Vermont

Vermont teens struggling with a variety of disorders and mental health problems can find real value in wilderness therapy. Learning back-to-basics skills without the distractions of modern technology, and being surrounded by the beauty of Southern Idaho can increase the confidence of troubled teens as they face new challenges and realize what they are truly capable of.
