Summer break is just around the corner; you have most likely already started wondering what to do with your teen for the two months that won’t be occupied with school. Especially with working parents and little supervisions, teens have increased opportunities for high-risk behaviors.

Help your teen transform this summer

If you are already concerned about your son or daughter’s behavior, unstructured time spent with peers this summer will likely only encourage those behaviors. A summer wilderness therapy program in Idaho can not only ease your own fears, but also provide your teen with hope for a brighter future.

Benefits of wilderness therapy

Even 5 minutes spent outdoors has proven to lower anxiety and depressive thoughts, major contributors to a teen’s destructive behaviors. During a summer wilderness therapy program in Idaho, teens are removed from the distractions of technology and peer pressure. They are able to connect with nature, peers and their personal feelings and fears in a naturally healing environment.
Wilderness ventures push teens out of their comfort zones. They are challenged daily. It is only through the challenge that they realize their own potential. Their confidence grows as they overcome the obstacles mentally, emotionally and physically.
