Adulthood isn’t easy–and for some young people, they face plant rather than stroll into it. For these individuals, motivation and confidence have often been a struggle, making adulthood seem nearly impossible. This is exactly what wilderness programs for young adults seek to change.
Through a combination of adventure therapy, traditional therapeutic techniques, and transitional living programming, we strive to help young adults to find positive change and move forward.

Why wilderness programs for young adults work

At blueFire Pulsar, we combine adventure therapy with traditional therapy to inspire responsibility and motivation. In adventure activities, individuals delve down into their fears, passions, and dreams–finding that they’re much more capable of fighting those fears and reaching those dreams than they thought.
Some of the activities used in wilderness programs for young adults include:

  • Rock climbing
  • Backpacking
  • Mountain biking
  • Canoeing
  • White water rafting
  • Cross country skiing
  • Snowshoeing
  • Hiking
  • Horsemanship
  • Caving

Aside from adventure therapy, we have clinical programming meant to help our clients work through issues holding them back from thriving in adulthood. This includes individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and equine therapy. The experts that work at blueFire Pulsar are experienced and passionate about helping young adults find and build their inner confidence.

Community involvement encourages responsibility and accountability

A large part of understanding responsibility and accountability involves your surrounding community. From your family members to your neighbors, you affect the world around you and it’s important to learn that.
This is why service work plays such a large role in our programming. We regularly get our clients to engage in community service, local environmental programs, and agencies to help out in the community.
There are vast benefits found from service work. Many individuals in wilderness programs for young adults grapple with feelings of inadequacy–giving back to the community makes them feel like they’re accomplishing something positive.
It also pushes our clients to interact with others, form healthy relationships, and learn interpersonal skills. During service work, they’re also gaining important skills that can translate to a future job. Furthermore, they can put the experience of service work on their resumes.
We aim to give our clients plenty of opportunities to improve themselves and work towards a bright future. Through the right guidance, individuals in our program can find their motivation to lead productive, inspired lives.
